1966 Graham

Post by jdaw1 » 14:49 Thu 27 Jun 2013

Eleven regulars gathered in a crowded Bung Hole to give Mr Doty a break from Wimbledon, in the form of a 1966 horizontal. It’s a hard life.

G66. Brick red, 40% opaque. Good sweetness, actually, sweet raisins. A hint of heat. But not as big as it should have been. Nonetheless, another fine port in an evening of them.

Quite pink, not as faded as some of the others in this tasting. This was sweet, but had a heft to it that was appealing. My notes have the word 'mahogany'. I have not eaten mahogany very recently, so I think I meant that this had a dark, rich character.

Oporto bottled. Deep brick red, 20% opaque. Quite subdued on the nose but comes with a thick textured, honey sweet fruitiness on the palate. Fantastic palate with masses of complexity and wonderful palate development. Delightful aftertaste with a long, brown sugar finish. Lovely port. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
