1976 Graham Malvedos

Post by AHB » 17:43 Fri 08 Sep 2017

Drunk at the SQVP Night Tasting.

Mid red colour, mature appearance; 50% opaque. Slightly medicinal nose bringing licorice and tobacco. Mid-weight entry, soft fruit followed by powerful acidity and a lot of peppercorn heat. The fruit is mature and slightly leathery with tannins that are very dry. Gentle heat warms the aftertaste which is otherwise a little hollow until a little red licorice shows on the finish. This is a port which is dry and unbalanced. Served blind was guessed to be Bomfim 1984. 84/100. Drunk 07-Sep-17. Decanted 14 hours
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
