2004 Graham Malvedos

Strawberry red in colour with mature red fruit on the nose and a distinct touch of hot Douro summer dust. Great mature fruit on the palate, deep and complex with sweet strawberry jam and a good grip to support. Fragrant aftertaste and a gently tannic finish that delivers a nice chewiness. This is tasty port combining the depth, power and sweetness of youthful port with some of the meatiness of mature port - but this would still reward more time in the cellar. 90/100. Drunk 07-Nov-16.
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
