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

Same colour as the 1978 but with more raisens and a touch of pine or varnish on the nose. In the mouth, I found it a touch astringent and therefore a tiny bit disappointing.

From ½ bottle. Pale colour, burnt sienna in tone and with a pale orange rim. Burnt raisins on the nose, stewed and a little unattractive. Sweet stewed and spoiled - probably heat damaged. Pleasant aftertaste, sweet and bitter at the same time. The other half bottle (which was the one tasted by Jacob) was reported to be in much better condition. NR.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

1979 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

Post by Andy Velebil » 05:16 Fri 30 Jul 2010

1979 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
From two separate 375ml bottles. A light ruby that showed a bit advanced for its age. The nose on this smelled very pruny and almost sickly sweet stewed fruit. The palate also had lots of stewed fruit on a thin and hot body. This wasn’t pleasant at all and I scored it 81 points. However, the second bottle was quite different with its strong tannins, cherries, licorice, and menthol. 86 Points
