1980 Graham

Post by AHB » 08:22 Fri 06 Sep 2013

Brick red with a transparent centre, 50% opaque. Restrained but very attractive on the nose, showing cinammon and sweet redcurrants. Sweet and poised on the palate, developing with great balance. Elegant fuit drives the flavour profile with tremendous layering of flavours. Gentle fruit and toffee aftertaste and an elegant, lingering finish. Really nice but possibly suffering slight stewiness from storage in a warm cellar. 93/100. Decanted 3 hours. 4 Sep 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
