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

Markedly darker than the 1979; there was a huge jump in colour between the late 1960s/1970s placemat and the the 1980s. Not particularly dramatic on the nose, but with quite a lot of fruit. Very nice and elegant in the mouth, perhaps still showing some soft and gentle tannins.

Nice to drink, but a more simple port.
Blue Stilton and Port - what else!

1982 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

1982 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
Another bottle where I was amazed at how dark ruby this was. An interesting and soft nose full of cranberries, tea leafs, and pine resin. Quite the complex nose compared to some of the other vintages. An amazing amount of spicy up-front fruit assails the palate and really made me sit up and take notice. Still such an incredibly youthful Port that doesn’t stop giving. Along with the 1982 Niepoort VP, this is one of the best I’ve had from this rarely talked about vintage. I’ve never seen this for sale, but I would love to buy some if I could find it. Michael Symington wrote in August 1982, ‟!Prospect excellent” and he was right! 94 Points
