2001 Graham Malvedos

Post by AHB » 22:04 Sun 25 May 2014

A softened red, shedding some of its youthful colour. Delicious strawberries on the nose. Surprisingly austere on the palate, with restrained fruit and pronounced tannins delivering quite a modest palate. The lingering red licorice and raspberry aftertaste is pleasant enough and is supported by soft tannins in the finish. Surprisingly lightweight and modest - perhaps in need of more time in the cellar to come back into balance. 86/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
