1977 Graham

Post by AHB » 22:52 Thu 26 Feb 2015

From magnum. Brick red in colour, 70% opaque. Surprising nose - rather dirty fruit with a touch of nearly faded bottle stink. Smooth golden syrup on the palate; rich and sweet spiced fruit with lots of charcoal that combine to give a wonderful complexity to the wine. A surprising burst of heat on the aftertaste that persists into the finish. The red-licorice finish is long and delicious. Surprisingly dry for a Graham port. 94/100. Drunk 24-Feb-15.
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
