1912 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:18 Mon 16 Jul 2012

G12: The bottle cracked whilst pushing the cork in! Orange-orange yellow, 20% opaque. Nose very quiet. Very little heat. A hint of apricot. Very short. Not quite dead, but barely alive.  JDAW.

Very pale, pale orange with a green rim. Huge dose of VA on the nose, dominating everything and giving a plastic tone. Sweet and sugary on the palate. Gentle apricots and mandarin on the palate, pleasant and soft. Lovely aftertaste, quite long and full of apricots. Poor on the nose, light but with a delicious palate. 84/100. 12-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
