2016 Graham

Post by AHB » 20:18 Tue 09 Oct 2018

Opaque and dark. Little showing on the nose except some faint fruit. The texture is wonderful, satin smooth initially and then extremely gripping, but always with the fruit nicely balancing everything else going on in the palate. The fruit leads on the finish. A lobely Graham, full of puppy fat for the short term and with great structure for the long term. 91-93.

Tasted 12 September 2018.
