1979 Graham's Malvedos VP

Post by DRT » 00:43 Sun 07 Oct 2007

From Uncle Tom

On Decanting
Slightly leaky, cork broke but was retrieved from neck. Decanted very cleanly off surprisingly little crust. Nice bright red/pink colour. Some heat, plum, dark cherry and anicede. Quite light in the mouth.

+2 Hours
Darker. Cherry nose with no heat. Same flavours but now with chocolate and mint on the finish. Very nice.

Today has been a very bad day. This may not see dawn :roll:

Thankfully, my Narcolepsy kicked-in shortly after typing the above note and I had only consumed one third of the bottle :D

+24 Hours
Much darker and thicker than the previous evening. Softer flavours and, surprisingly, some tannins emerging that I did not detect before.

A very saisfying glass of port. Not stunning by any means but a very good everyday VP. It's past its peak now but doesn't seem to be going downhill in a hurry.

Score: 6-5
