NV Graham's The Emperor Tawny

Post by AHB » 23:21 Wed 16 Feb 2011

Bottled approximately 1975-1980. Decanted from a couple of teaspoons of powdery sediment.

Deep honey colour, almost with a green tinge to it. Honey and clover on the nose, slightly rubbery - not a great nose but not offensive. Oily texture; figs and almonds on the palate, sweet but with a nice balancing acidity. Lovely aftertaste and a big, full finish that lasts a very long time.

Pleasant port, especially the finish, but not vintage port as I would prefer. 83/100. Drunk 16 Feb 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
