1983 Graham

Rose red rim, brick centre, 60% opaque. Lively nose full of cinammon and woodsmoke. Silky smooth entry with soft raisin and cherry fruit. Delicious layering and complexity which builds up on the palate to give greater and better depth. Spicy but a surprisingly dry aftertaste and finish with a great length. The cocoa tannins promise a long life still to come. 92/100. Tasted 24-Feb-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
