1985 Vintage Port

June 7, 2012
Question by: Karl, Bury St. Edmunds, England


I have a sealed wooden box of 1985 Vintage Port received as a birthday gift many years ago, and I am having difficulty with finding information about it (is it good, its value, etc).  The exterior of the box has the following markings:
1985 Vintage Port  /  TJK London  /  Das Vinhas Do Alto Douro  /  Real Companhia Velha  /  Companhia Geral Da Agricultura  /  Royal Oporto Wine Company

Is this a recognized vintage?
