Alas I was unable to take a tasting note of this port.

A very nice Port. Although I don't usually like this word in wine tasting; extremely smooth in the mouth with a beautiful elegance and balance.

1965 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

1965 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
Another bottle that seemed to divide the group between those that preferred the 1964 and 1965. Lighter in color and with more cedar on the nose than the ’64 this initially showed more age. Yet the palate still had lots of tannins, better acidity, dried strawberries and figs later in the finish. I liked the youthfulness of the palate better on this than the 1964 and although close, my preference was for this vintage. This was another long hot and dry vintage with only a little rain during the harvest that did little good. Yet despite those conditions this has held up quite well. 91 Points.
