1960 Graham

Post by AHB » 22:52 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Casa Ribeira Restaurante (where they do an excellent suckling pig).

Bottled by Grants of St James. Brick red with an attractive appearance; 40% opaque. Fresh on the nose with some sweet strawberry jam, a little restrained at first. Nicely balanced on entry, full of strawberry with a fresh acidity keeping the balance well. Poised on its feet with a remarkable lithe elegance. Delicious strawberry aftertaste. A port which is sweet and ripe yet well balanced. 90/100. 22-Jun-17. 5 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
