1963 Graham's Vintage Port

Post by DRT » 23:34 Fri 22 Jun 2007

Oporto bottled â€‟ decanted 12 hours

Bright red colour which looked light at the beginning but darkened significantly as the night went on. Slightly spirity nose with red fruits beneath. Extremely smooth and thick in the mouth. Tannins still hanging around but not enough to overpower the fruit. Taste of plums and dark chocolate. Long sweet mouth-watering finish. For me, this was the star of the night.

From Crusting Pipe off-line:
Darker red colour with brown tinge, excellent legs. Nose was figgy and in the mouth it was very sharp on the tongue. Nice coffe notes but were a bit over-powered. Tasting later the sharpness had faded and the coffee and dried figs came out beautifully, excellent port in the end.
