1948 Graham Vintage Port

Post by AHB » 23:24 Fri 12 Apr 2013

Deep mahogany red, 50% opaque. Mature on the nose with brown sugar, lots of nutmeg and a touch of tobacco. Brown sugar and caramelised pears on entry. Great balance on the palate but modest bodied. Big finish of burnt toffee apple and a huge length. Late acidity causes a burst of saliva and a great, long length. 97/100. Drunk 18-Jan-13.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
