1970 Graham

Bottled by John Harvey & Sons of Bristol. Deep red with rich, brick tones. Gentle Christmas cake with rich, candied cherry - very lovely. Soft and silky texture with gorgeous flavours of rich cherry, flavoursome spices and a slow build up to a massive palate presence and perfect balance. Long and wonderful finish. A superb bottle of a very fine port. 96/100. Drunk 24-Jun-14. Decanted 7½ hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
