1966 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 19:47 Sun 06 Nov 2011

Deep red in colour, paler on the rim; 40% opaque. Minty on the nose, with a touch of lemon grass. Soft and balanced entry. Sweet amd mature fruit dominates the palate, with a lovely balance - very mouthfilling. Dry touch to the aftertaste, and then a long and surprisingly youthful finish. This is delicious. 94/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
