1963 Graham

Post by jdaw1 » 23:28 Fri 25 Apr 2014

Wednesday 23rd April 2014, the day before the BFT, the day after A Flight of 1966, and the same day as a vertical of Sandeman arranged by Stevens Garnier (busy week), folks gathered in The Bung Hole for 1960 versus 1963.

Very pale rose in colour, <10% opaque. Plastic on the nose but swirling improves this. Nice texture, but also has a sharp tone and some harshness on the initial impression. Good fruit develops on the mid-palate, sweet and attractive dusty fruit that is more elegant than I normally expect. A lovely raisin finish with the tannins still active. Enjoyable port. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
