1995 Graham Malvedos

Post by DRT » 02:32 Sun 21 Mar 2010

1995 Graham's Malvedos (half bottle #1)
Tasted as part of a vertical of 24 Graham's and Graham's Malvedos vintages at The RAF Club, Piccadilly, London, on 22nd March 2010.

The links: *Please note that the 2008 Cask Sample was donated to this tasting by the Symington family before the final blend was complete so this may not accurately represent what the 2008 Graham's or Graham's Malvedos will be, should either of these be approved and declared later in 2010.

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

With the half-bottles #1 is from Paul Symington's side of the table and #2 is from Richard Maysons'.

A damaged bottle, unfortunately, with an oddly stewed sensation on the nose and in the mouth. Not damaged beyond drinkability but certainly not great.

1995 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

Post by Andy Velebil » 05:13 Fri 30 Jul 2010

1995 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
From a 375ml bottle. The color was about the same as the 1992. Something wasn’t right as the nose smelled cooked and the palate was very hot, lacking fruit and seemed very off. Paul also commented there was something not right about this bottle. N/R
