2002 Graham's Crusted Port

Post by DRT » 22:46 Sat 11 Dec 2010

Decanted 1 hour.

A soft vanilla nose. Nice, thick mouthfeel. Lots of black fruit with good acidity. Some heat in the mid-palate (hopefully just needs longer in the decanter) then lots of dry, powdery tannins in the finish. Very nice port that would benefit from another 5 years+ in the bottle.

This bottle cost me just over £8 from Sainsbury :D

I presume that the abbreviation for Gragam's will be Gg?

Not so. I only had 2 glasses. I suspect that the random "g" came from the bottle of Crasto DOC 2008 that I had before opening the Gragam's :D
