1998 Graham Malvedos

Post by AHB » 00:11 Sat 09 Oct 2010

Ex-cellars. Deep red, opaque, but with no purple. Open on the nose and full of blackcurrants. Soft texture, with big tannins and lots of ripe blackcurrant. Delicious on the palate, lots of big flavours. Big and fruity aftertaste, with a very long finish. A wine with lots of potential. 90/100. Drunk 26 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
