1960 Dow

Post by jdaw1 » 19:52 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.

D60, brought by THRA, and my last TN for vintage port at the end of a very long day. ‟red-brown”, ‟heat then sugar-sweetness”. Soon after I retired to bed.

Deep burnished gold. Spicy nose, lifted and attractive; lots of fruit. Restrained fruit on entry, huge levels of acidity subduing the strawberry fruit. Lovely sweet red fruit aftertaste, and a long lingering curry leaf finish. Really nice port. 91/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Curry leaves would have to be an unusual descriptor for an aged VP.
