1977 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:09 Sat 09 Oct 2010

From tregnum. Ex-cellars. Gentle red in colour, with some paling on the rim; 60% opacity. Dusty raspberry on the nose, slightly hot. Sweet impact, but with lots of heat among the soft raspberry fruit, gentle red licorice and tight acidity. The red licorice dominates the aftertaste, but merges into the heat and raspberry finish. A fine and lovely port. 89/100. Drunk 24 September 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

G77, from an ex-cellars tregnum. What joy a tregnum. I was so overcome with pleasure at the odd-size bottle that I failed to take any notes about the juice. :-(

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