G70, decanted 07:30. Dark dark red, 75% opaque. Big, sweet, rich, and too young. Palate of dark plums and enveloping sweetness. Arguably needing another decade in the cellar, but fabulous drinking right now.

WOTN for DRT, CMAG and JDAW; the more delicate W70 being preferred by AHB.

Bottled by Harvey's of Bristol. Brick red with a rose time, 90% opaque. Dusty cherries and icing sugar on the nose - very lovely and inviting. Rounded and velvety on the palate, sweet fruit that is mouthfilling and delivers huge presence and flavours. A surprisingly youthful Graham flavour profile just showing hints of the complex Graham Christmas cake. A huge aftertaste, full of rounded sweet redcurrants, before a very long and sticky finish. 93/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
