This weekend Ronnie and I opened a bottle of Graham's VP 1977 at the occasion of my 30th birthday. As Graham's has proved not to be our most favourite style (especially when drunk next to Fonseca or Taylor's), it was interesting to taste it in its full right.
Decanted for 2 hrs:
Rusty / rose hip colour, not very intens. Elegantly aged and easy drinking, without losing its complexity. Subtle aromas of dried vigs, leather and star anise with a delegate taste of fresh vigs, red fruit (but what??), brown sugar, liquorice and mild tabacco to the end. The finish does not add any new flavours: nothing is really happening here. Overall, slightly hot VP, but very enjoyable. I'll give it 91 pts!
After 1,5 day:
It became the kind of port you can serve to your parents (in law) who know nothing about wine, but still think they drink the best port ever made Wink Wink I still enjoyed it, but it lost it complexity.

I will copy paste a good deal of my TN's just because it's fun to have them here as well. I'll start off with a TN that is not actually mine, but LadyR's. I doubt if she will be posting here (or anywhere) because she's always crazy busy at work.
