1996 Graham Malvedos - half bottle
Purchased earlier this year by AHB from Sainsbury and opened this evening because I have no will-power and cannot wait until tomorrow's Christmas Off-line before tasting some port :roll: .

On Decanting
The cork disintegrated into thousands of crumbs. Some very fine sediment was trapped by the filter. A deep ruby red in the decanter but surprisingly light in the glass. Huge molases nose with a touch of spirit and perhaps a little VA. Nice thick texture. Red fruits and lots of tannin. Bitter finish. More later.

First glass. The VA is now more prominent. I'll put this away in the fridge and re-visit at the weekend.
