Fonseca May have, temporarily, lost some oomph as IMO it is in a phase right now, but 1985 Taylor will never be great. Good yes, great no.
Andy, imho I miss some words after "Taylor will...." : "in my humble opinion". There is no absolute verdict (unless your name is Donald Trump ofcourse)!!

Re: 2018 Declarations

Quinta do Vallado has declared a 2018 Vintage Port, a field blend of a vineyard in the Torto Valley. The label says Vallado Porto Vintage 2018 (not Quinta do Vallado!).

Shipment to most EU countries is free for orders over €150.00

Julia Harding has also published hers, but I am not a subscriber to Purple Pages so can't read her article.
Yes, you can (free to Barack Obama :) ): there is a free one-hour membership you can apply for (only once!), enough to read/copy the two articles of Julia Harding.

Re: 2017 Pintas

Hi Alex,
In May I had the pleasure to visit Sandra and at the end of the tasting she made me taste her VP '17 from cask. I knew (and loved!!) her VP '15 and '16, but this '17 blew me away, exactly for the reasons you described so eloquently. Sandra and Jorge make fabulous wines and Ports!
