1942 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:33 Sun 10 Mar 2013

G42: red-brown, 25% opaque. Nose slightly acrid. To taste dry, big red cherry fruit, and a hint of heat. Big and long and extremely good. Also a hint of marmalade - JDAW, Jan 2013

Dark orange, 30% opaque. Wonderful sweet orange concentrate on the nose. Balanced entry; sweet and acid balance. Fruit dominated mid-palate. Fantastic balance and elegance. Very long finish of amazing length. Amazing port, fabulous showing. 98/100.
