1983 Graham

Post by AHB » 22:00 Sun 25 May 2014

Mature red colour, 80% opaque. Surprisingly empty on the nose showing only a little sour fruit. But soft and sweet fruit all over the palate, with lots of brown sugar balanced by sharp, sour cherries and gentle tannins. Surprisingly sharp on the palate. A big burst of heat on the aftertaste from the pronounced acidity that gives a clean, fresh finish. 87/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
