Graham’s Crusted bottled 2004: opened late in the evening so the notes are concise. Bright purple, 95% opaque. Lots of young robust fruit. Clearly a young a full-bodied port, but rather yummy. Bought from DRT, who had bought it from Sainsbury’s, who had bought it from Fells, who had bought it from the Symingtons, all of whom had looked after it perfectly.

Much better nose than the first bottle, but still slightly vegetal.

I seem to remember someone suggesting that it might have been because my glass was too close to the Ck94, which is entirely plausible.
