1970 Graham

Post by AHB » 21:19 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Oxblood red, 90% opaque. A wonderful and typical Graham nose of Christmas fruits spiced with cloves. Silky entry with the mature spiced fruit promised by the nose, sweet but balanced and with soft tannins. Mouthfilling and charming without being shy in any way. Lovely spicy and slightly peppery finish with a great length of sweet redcurrant. Lovely port. 93/100. Drunk 27-Sep-16. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
