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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
