2011 Graham Stone Terraces

Post by AHB » 08:50 Sun 18 Aug 2013

250 cases. Less intense in colour than the Graham 2011, an attractive violet. Dominated by rich, lush fruit on entry with the very firm and ripe tannins hidden behind the mass of fruit. A huge finish, massive in size and very, very long. This is intense and concentrated, a huge wine and a contender for wine of the vintage at this tasting. 95-97. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
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
