1970 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 12:48 Sun 06 Nov 2011

80% opaque, red centre and rose coloured rim. Clove spiced cherries on the nose, sweet and attractive. Sweet cherry toffee flavours; spicy tobacco edge to the tongue; soft and balanced in the mouth. Toffee flavours at the end of the palate. Lovely sweet redcurrant flavour on the aftertaste and finish, but the finish is a little clipped. Surprisingly evolved, probably now at its peak. 89/100. Drunk 14 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
