1955 Graham

Post by AHB » 22:06 Tue 01 Jul 2014

Slightly darker than the Dow 1955 shown alongside; a rich red ochre; 60% opaque. Sweet fruit on the nose, rich and attractive but with a hint of harshness. Smooth in texture, sweet and complex fruit with a terrific depth of flavour and a huge late palate presence. Thick texture and a powerful finish of typical rich Graham fruitcake. 95/100. Drunk 25-Jun-14. Decanted 4 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
