1966 Warre

Post by jdaw1 » 19:50 Thu 03 May 2012

On Wednesday 2nd May 2012 Johnny Symington joined some regulars at The Bung Hole” , partly to show off the Graham 1952 Single Harvest Tawny. All this after a day spent at The Big Fortified Tasting.

Bottled by Mayor Sworder. Mature, red colour - mid-maturity. Wonderful nose, full and vibrant. Delightful palate, lots of fruit up front and with supportive but soft tannins. Very spicy core to the mid-palate - really still quite lively. Long finish, drinking really beautifully. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
