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

I was obviously struggling at this stage. My note simply said "very nice".

Ex-cellars. Opaque, deep red and an impenetrable centre. Hot and spicy on the nose, youthfully exuberant and still showing blackcurrants. Soft texture in the mouth, fruit forward; sweet and ripe but with good tannic grip. Delicious on the palate. Good fruity aftertaste, with sweet blackcurrants dominating. Impressive. 87/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

I did not know if this port is only in a bad phase or it is as it is: so it was one you will not discuss afterwards
Blue Stilton and Port - what else!

1996 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

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

1996 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
A deep purple color and a tight nose that didn’t give up much. The tannins were rough and it didn’t help that the fruit was also not giving up much on the palate. I think this is in an awkward place at the moment, yet later in the evening it showed good promise for the future. Let this sleep for a while longer until it comes out of this phase it’s in. Of note, there were 487 pipes produced at Malvedos this vintage. The highest amount ever produced. 93 Points
