1963 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:08 Sat 09 Oct 2010

Brick red, very slightly lighter in colour than the Taylor 1963 shown alongside; 30% opaque. Sweet and inviting nose, full of redcurrants and raisins and spicy mace. Very "Graham" in the mouth; sweet mixed spiced dried fruits, lots of candied cherries as well as gentle tannins and delightful structure. A beautiful aftertaste and a long finish that is full of sweet, sticky cherry. 92/100. Drunk 24 September 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

G63, the poor lighting restricting the description of the visuals to ‟red, mid translucency”. At D+0 very hot, and same at +15 minutes, Later with berry fruit growing, particularly like ‟hot raspberries”. I wasn’t being eloquent.

My ranking was ‟F60 > G63 > G77 > T63”.
