1987 Graham Malvedos

Post by AHB » 00:10 Sat 09 Oct 2010

Ex-cellars. Deep red, holding into the rim, 90% opaque. Surprisingly closed on the nose considering the extended decant, showing some violets. Full and rich entry with deep flavours. Strong acidity and soft, dry tannins. Very fat and ripe. A dry aftertaste, full of rich fruit. Cheek drying tannins show on the finish and accompany a long length of chocolate and blueberry. This is great port. 92/100. Drunk 25 September 2010.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

GM87: glorious red, 85% opaque. Thick prune jam, then heat, the heat continuing to the end. Very long.
