1980 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 15:02 Sun 06 Nov 2011

90% opaque, deep red and with the first signs of bricking on the rim. Dusty plums give and attractive and sweet nose. Sweet and baalnced on entry, showing soft and mature fruit that dominates a soft, syrupy essence. Soft tannins and soft acidity. A warm aftertaste of figgy pudding and then a dark chocolate finish that lasts for ages. Great port. 91/100. Drunk 14 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
