Provided by Tom, pop'n'poured at the White Horse in Newport, and drunk alongside some G63. The shipper is not known for certain, though believed to be Graham; the cork showed only "Harvey's vintage 1954" (the 4 was viable, though not completely visible) and another panel which looked as though it said "bottled by Harvey's" though was somewhat unclear.
A deep crimson colour (darker than the G63) and in superb condition, with wonderful aromas immediately post-decant; full and delicious flavour, sweet and long. Certainly believable that this might have been Grahams (by comparison, the G63 drunk alongside was also very good, firmer but with a slight heat on the finish, though only minor; a pair of excellent wines). The bottle did not last long.
