Dow Vintage Port 1985 wine review by (PB)
I ordered this by the glass at an L.A. restaurant and was skeptical that it was what it was listed as. It was $5 which is absurdly low for a glass of this wine and I had already had an "issue" moments before with ordering a bottle of wine off the menu which they tried to substitute without telling me.
Due to the lighting of the place, I couldn't evaluate the color of the wine. Bouquet was less raisiny than I might have expected, with green sweet herbal notes.
Palate: bright cherry and currant richness on a lush velvety "vintage port" texture that is heavenly. I don't know what to make of the cheapness of this glass but it was a joy raising it!
