1996 Graham's Malvedos

Post by DRT » 00:48 Sun 08 Jun 2008

Decanted 2 Hours
Very deep purple. Quite closed on the nose but a good swirl in the glass brings fresh red fruits. Thick, smooth and very satisfying mouthfeel. Very tannic. Dark chocolate with some anicede and mint. Dry, dry and more dry at the end.

This port needs at least another 5-10 years to open up but I bought these very cheap and they make very good late night emergency stock :wink:

I got 7 of these at Sainsbury's at £10 a piece a couple of years ago, is that the same for you?

P.S. Anicede? Learn to spell young man, learn to spell.
Port is basically a red drink

Yes, I got some of those and also picked some up on a Manager's Special in our local Sainsbury for £11.50 a few weeks ago.
