2004 Graham Malvedos

Deep red but with no youthful purple; opaque centre. Highly perfumed nose, full of violets and sour blueberry. Smooth, fruit led entry with generous bramble fruit. Powerful tannins grip the mid-palate, which is full of perfume and fruit. Lovely chocolate tones appear on the finish which has a slight sparkle of heat. The finish has good length with sticky bramble fruit. Lots of potential for the future. 89/100. 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
