2011 Graham LBV

Post by AHB » 22:52 Mon 03 Apr 2017

Bottled 2015. Youthful red, 95% opaque. A harsh nose delivering a little fruit. More attractive on entry bringing sweetness with the light fruit and soft tannins. Light but flavoursome on the mid-palate with a good structure and lots of cherry fruit. Tart cherry juice on the finish, which is a good length. An impressive bottle of filtered LBV. 88/100. Drunk 21-Feb-17.
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
