NV Graham's Crusted (bottled 2003)

Post by DRT » 08:31 Mon 26 Dec 2011

By text message, jdaw1 wrote:Graham's Crusted bottled 2003, at d+0. Red-red-pink 70% opaque; nose has tannic dryness, plum and cherry. To taste good balance and weight, fine structure, mid sweetness. Heat from mid- to late-palate. Some roughness throughout, which will hopefully lessen with air.

An hour later much evolution. Much much sweeter. Still good weight and size. The sweetness now overwhelming, giving an impression of simplicity. Plums late palate. Fine drinking port, of which I will buy more (at £22).

Pictures of cork ("Crusted Bottled 2003") and bottle to follow.

A TN for a different bottle of the same wine was moved to here by DRT.
