NV Graham's The Emperor Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:04 Wed 01 Jun 2011

Bottled around 1975-1980 and sealed with a screw cap. Decanted off a little sludgy sediment. The colour of burnt sugar, green on the rim. Very little on the nose, perhaps some fresh-cut grass. Toffee apples on the palate, but with a nice core of ripe apple acidity. Decent range of flavours on the palate. Long finish of burnt sugar and hard toffee. Not a bad port, and a pleasant glass - perhaps two - for the evening. 81/100. Drunk 31 May 2011 after 24 hours of decanting.
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
