Can't see any 85 port in the LCBO.

If you have friends/family in BC or Alberta, I know there are a few bottles of Taylor Fladgate 1985 & Fonseca 1985 hanging around.

The LCBO has a magnum of 1985 Dom for only 5799.95. http://foodanddrink.ca/lcbo-ear/lcbo/product/inventory/searchResults.do?language=EN&itemNumber=308957 On a more reasonable scale, the LCBO has a couple of 30 year old ports: http://foodanddrink.ca/lcbo-ear/lcbo/product/details.do?language=EN&a...

Occultum Lapidem is a great drop, and a good price too. It's a minimum of $29.99 here, so the LCBO gets good pricing again :wink:

Hacienda Lopez de Harro Rioja Reserva 2005. A 92pt wine from Wine Advocate, and a bargain at $13.59. A lovely Tempranillo blend, with enough wood/pencil shavings on the nose, and bright, ripe, slightly tart/acidic fruits on the palate, to keep it interesting. Wonderfully dry, lingering finish.

Been getting really bored of beer recently, and the increasingly high prices for sub-par beers, so turning to wine more often. Tonight was a lovely tipple from Roussillon; M. Chapoutier`s Cotes du Roussillon Villages Bila Haut Rouge 2012. A nice blend of Syrah, Grenache & Carignan. Well balanced...

The bottled version reminds me of an alcoholic Dandelion & Burdock; nice herbal, spiced bitterness.
