1985 Graham

People gathered in the Bung Hole to do the obvious. There was a chance of being joined by a newbie, to sample his TV64, but he was a no-show.

Similar in colour to G83. Maybe 70%ish. Smelt and tasted of oranges and plums. Minty aftertaste. Alcohol noticeable but welcomed.

Rich red colour, rose on the rim; 75% opaque. Lovely pronounced nose, full of ripe fruit - really attractive. Satin smooth entry, full of poised fruit with a powerful green tannin core that gives structure and support to the big palate. A soft strawberry undertone to the lovely aftertaste. Big finish, long and powerful with dark chocolate mixed with sweet, red fruit. Very fine port. 91/100. Decanted 12 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
