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

Somewhat simpler than many of the other Malvedos, this was an uncomplex and attractive Port, with quite a lot of sweetness. Very nice.

Are you sure about those words?

I found this to be a fantastic young brute with tons of fruit and good acidity. I think this is a wine for the long term and worth buying a stock of when it is released in 2011/12 in the UK.

I am currently sipping a glass of this that I took home in a sample bottle. It has a wonderful lemon nose with lovely soft blackcurrant on the palate and a good grippy, tannic backbone. Great stuff.

Opps...that's what comes of trying to type out 29 tasting notes in a row...

Ex-cellars. This was the first Malvedos vintage made in the new robotic lagares. Deep red, red rim, opaque centre. Young and aggressive nose; youthful and aggressive on the palate with gripping tannins and jammy fruit. The fruit on the palaye is very impressive and keeps growing. The immediate aftertaste is subdued and the finish a little faint. If age allows a full nose and aftertaste to develop, this will be a delightful wine. 86/100.

The King James Bible, Corinthians 13:13, wrote:And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
A kindly soul posted me a sample of GM01 (and GM68 and G03), which was tasted yesterday, 2nd April, eleven days after being decanted.

Graham’s Malvedos 2001: 90% opaque, red with a hint of purple. Less fruit than the ’68, but still lots of prune. No raisin. Less structured than the older brother. Great length, but all prune. Sweet.

Thank you.

alredy closed up, so we have to wait for some years to see how this port will develop

2001 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

Post by Andy Velebil » 05:12 Fri 30 Jul 2010

2001 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
Lots of rich blackberries on the nose. Another one of those bottles that grabs you by the seat of your pants from the moment you taste it. From its massive full rich fruit to its dense tannins and long finish, what’s not to love. 92-93 Points
