1966 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:10 Mon 16 Jul 2012

G66: dark red, 60% opaque. Nose fair, with some red fruit. To taste mid weight, lots of red fruit, an a hint of heat. The fruit might even be strawberry. Good, but lighter than great. JDAW.

Deep red, solid core with some softening on the rim, 90% opaque. A little restrained on the nose, but attractive with lovely secondary fruit. Mid-weight body and texture; rich flavours with plentiful fruit and Christmas cake spices. Wonderfully rewarding of patience on the palate. Lovely cherry aftertaste, fresh and fruity and full of mature life. 93/100. 12-Jun-12. Decanted 3 hours.
