2011 Graham

Post by AHB » 08:49 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Modest nose, taking several days to make a proper appearance when it mixed lavender and morello cherries. Velvety texture, full of ripe, lush fruit that is wrapped around powerful iron tannins. A huge aftertaste and a massive finish. This is an immense, complete port with a long life ahead of it. 97-99. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
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
