1963 Graham

Post by AHB » 21:56 Tue 01 Jul 2014

Thank you Henry Shotton! Ex-cellars, opened and decanted to share with guests at the Portuguese launch of the Graham Ne Oublie port. Mature red centre and a brick rim; 60% opaque. Spiced redcurrant jelly nose; rich, mature and attractive. Smooth and rounded palate, rich and flavoursome with intense flavours. Slightly thinner texture than the Graham 1955 drunk alongside. Wonderful long finish driven by the ripe and opulent fruit. Delicious port. 91/100. Drunk 25-Jun-14. Decanted 3 hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
