96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. Yes, it is made in a sweeter style than the other ports, but it is a fabulous wine because of a dazzling level of black-cherry fruit, an enormous structure, and staggering depth, dimension, and length. (RP)" (01/1989) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark color, with intense aromas of blackberry, licorice and hints of flowers. Full-bodied, lightly sweet, with superrefined tannins. Long and caressing. Very youthful. Will improve for a long time. This...

93 points John Gilman: "I have had this wine a number of times out of half bottle over the last few years, and it is a lovely drink in the smaller-sized format. However, in 750 ml. it is not even remotely near ready. The nose is deep and still rather reticent in this size, reluctantly offering up a fine mix of cassis, black cherry, tobacco, a bit of tar, violets, smoke and spicy wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and very well-delineated, with a rock solid core of fruit currently buttoned up tight behind a wall of ripe tannin. The finish is long...

96 points Decanter: "A troublesome vintage for many shippers, but Fonseca 1985 never fails to impress: tight-knit, dense and minty with a core of concentration and pure berry fruit. Succulent, wonderfully fresh and vibrant at 30 years old. Peacock’s tail of a finish. A real ‘wow’ of a wine that promises to last a lifetime. (RM)" (11/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Fonseca is still youthful in appearance with hardly any ageing on the rim. The nose offers kirsch, sloes and Christmas cake. With time, there are subtle notes of drie...

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of walnuts, dried fruit and raisins. Surprisingly rich and powerful. Yet medium-bodied now. Concludes with a nutty finish. Beautiful. Drink now." (01/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 1985 Dow’s Vintage Port has a gorgeous, very pure bouquet with mulberry, leather, terracotta tiles on a warm day, and hints of clove all beautifully defined. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, lightly spiced on the entry, touches of liquorice and black pepper, curry powder and ginger with a very harmonious and long finish. Th...

95 points John Gilman: "The 1985 Cheval Blanc is a beautiful bottle of young wine that still needs several years of cellaring to fully reach its apogee and start to show all of its multi-layered complexity. The bouquet is deep and clearly destined for profundity, but still a tad primary in its mélange of dark berries, menthol, tobacco leaf, gravelly soil tones, smoke and a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite tight, with a great core of pure fruit, impeccable focus and balance, ripe tannins and great length and g...

Jancis Robinson: "De Boüard’s first vintage, and already aged on the lees. Sweet and rather gorgeous and with some freshness. Kerpow! There is a bit of decay but also liquorice." (11/2011) Wine Spectator: "Very concentrated, with plum and cassis character and a hint of nuts. It's full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and loads of coffee and fruit on the finish. Better after 1996." (10/1994) K&L Notes: 90 points Neal Martin for Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Farr Vintners’ vertical from ex-chateau magnum. The 1985 has declined since I tasted it five ye...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Joseph Phelps "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94JG, 93RP). John Gilman: "True to the Phelps impeccable track record throughout the vintages of the 1980s (in my book the golden age at Joseph Phelps did not end until the 1990s), the 1985 Eisele is a beautiful and very classic bottle of cabernet that probably is one of the top two or three wines of the vintage. The bouquet is deep and glorious, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of cassis, black berries, mint, bitter chocolate, tobacco, vanillin oak and cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and still fairly chewy, with great depth at the core, ripe, well-integrated tannins and excellent length and grip on the complex and palate-staining finish. I would still give this wine another three or four years to unfold, as it has not yet fully blossomed. A lovely example of the 1985 vintage. (Drink between 2010-2030) " (07/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My experience with Smith-Woodhouse is limited. Is the 1985 the sleeper of the vintage? An astonishing amount of creamy, black-cherry and chocolate-scented fruit fills the nose. On the palate, this full-bodied wine is loaded with extract, great length, and has super finish with plenty of fruit and tannin in proper balance. (RP)" (01/1989)
Starting Bid: $131.00

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 1985 William Hill "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (92WS). Wine Spectator: "Still very young, concentrated and dryingly tannic, but the ripe cherry and strawberry fruit peeks through the tight structure. Very tight and tough now, but the length of the finish and beauty of the fruit bodes well. " (11/1988)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Soutard, St-Émilion (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Soutard is a sensationally rich, tannic, deep, multidimensional wine that balances muscle and grace. It is more supple than usual, but still capable of 20 or more years of longevity. (RP)" (01/1998)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Domaine Ponsot Clos De La Roche Cuvee Vieilles Vignes (98RP, (94-97VN), 95BH, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The irregular Ponsot estate turned out a great portfolio of 1985s, the finest of which is the Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes. There is no color degradation in this saturated dark ruby-colored 1985. The spectacular aromatics display scents of caramel, blackberry and cherry fruit, smoke, dried herbs, and leather. Fleshy and succulent, with an expansive, chewy texture, outstanding purity, and a long, lusty finish, this is a terrific example from Ponsot. It should drink well for 10-12 years, perhaps longer. (RP)" (02/2002)
Starting Bid: $6,245.00

Bid on this bottle of 1985 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg Grand Cru (100WS, 96RP, 95JG, 95VN, 94BH). Wine Spectator: "A truly great wine. Amazing concentration, brimming with focused cherry, plum, smoke and cinnamon flavors, all tied together into a harmonious package that keeps echoing and changing with every sip. Beautfiully smooth but firm on the palate, it has the uncanny feeling of power with no weight, only mass. *#3 Top 100 Wines of 1988* (HS)" (02/1988)

Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A consistently delicious example of Vieux-Telegraphe, this spicy, fruity, exuberant, flamboyant wine is full-bodied, juicy, and succulent. Although it lacks the extra dimension of flavor and complexity necessary to merit an outstanding score, it consistently provides a pleasing, mouthfilling glass of textbook Vieux-Telegraphe. (RP)" (01/1997)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94WS). Wine Spectator: "Distinct currant, cassis, cherry and vanilla flavors are elegant and well focused with harmonous tannins and subtle oak flavors around the edges. It's well balanced and very pretty, finishing with cassis-like flavors. *Ranked #45 of Top 100 Wines of 1988; Spectator Selection* " (12/1988)
Starting Bid: $186.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 La Maison Rouget Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaumonts" (93BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "While there is the initial hints of bricking, the nose is still quite fresh with pretty spice, stone and secondary fruit aromas leading to rich, detailed and equally mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in a focused, delicious, mouth coating and impressively lingering finish. I very much like the underlying sense of harmony and overall balance and unlike many '85s that are tiring today, this is going to be with us for years to come." (10/2010)
Starting Bid: $227.22

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru (96RP, 96VN, 95WS, 91BH). Vinous: "The 1985 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a breathtaking bouquet with wild strawberry and raspberry fruit, hints of wild mint, brine and a touch of wild fennel. There is astonishing precision and focus in situ here. The palate has a balletic sense of balance that marries with the fruit intensity this growing season bestowed its fines wines. I am quite taken aback by its youthfulness and finesse, supple in texture with pastille-like red fruit that fan out on the sappy finish, traces of bay leaf on the long aftertaste. Despite being now over 30 years old, I feel that this Clos de la Roche could still improve over the next 10 or 15 years. Tasted at Tour d’Argent restaurant in Paris. (NM)" (07/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (94ST, 92RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Ripe aromas of plum, currant, lead pencil and milk chocolate. Sweet but penetrating and gripping, with lovely clarity of flavor and terrific thrust. Classic claret, with lovely fruit and a very long, ripely tannic finish. A compelling example from this very elegantly styled vintage. (ST)" (07/2002)
