1986 Graham Malvedos

Post by AHB » 21:47 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Deep red and youthful - but not too young; opaque. Deep and fruity nose of black cherry juice matching a deep, smooth palate of black cherry juice and sweet bramble. Smooth fruit but with chalky tannins lurking behind the bramble, which grows to a lovely, sweet mouthful. Dry and chalky aftertaste, full of the black bramble that goes on to deliver fruit, fruit and more fruit. This is delicious and so smooth. 92/100. Drunk 10-Nov-16. Decanted 8 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
