1983 Graham's Vintage Port

Post by Andy Velebil » 18:23 Sun 21 Nov 2010

Popped and poured, with no decanting. A stark contrast to the 1983 Ferreira Qt. d. Seixo VP, as this VP was still a dark purple color and a thick blackberry nose. While the Ferreira was soft and elegant, this Graham's was dense, rich, tannic, and drank like a toddler compared to the fully mature Ferreira. A full and long finish lingered and left me licking my lips for more. This is nowhere near mature and probably still has another 15-20 years before it starts getting to that stage.
