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

Young, opaque and with a vivid purple rim. Blackcurrants spring out of the glass. Aggressive acidic / tannic entry, with the powerful tannins dominating the fruit. The aftertaste is tannic and grippy - there is fruit in the aftertaste, but the tannins are all powerful. Interesting and potentially very impressive. 86/100 for drinking today.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

I can not say anthing to this port: it was just a wrong time point to open this and try to judge it.
Blue Stilton and Port - what else!

2006 Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port

2006 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
Another ‟Squid Ink” colored Port with lots of tanky notes on the nose, this is one beast of a wine. Full throttle blackberries, chocolate and a wall of tannins are amazing. But the amount of complexity on the palate is where this really shined for such a young Port. Many people have written off 2006 as being not a good year, they obviously haven’t tasted this little gem. While I put a range in, my notes state ‟More to 94 than 92.”
92-94 Points
