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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

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