1991 Graham

By the glass from Vinum. Deep rose red with a touch of bricking; 80% opaque. Little on the nose at first but patience allows some bruised plum to develop. Lovely, gentle entry. Sweet but balanced fruit with an elegant acidity that combine to give tasty current drinking. Rich aftertaste and a fine finish. Not a port which will hold for many years, but an enjoyable wine for now and the mid-term. 89/100. Drunk 25-Jun-14. Pop 'n' pour.
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
