1972 Graham Single Tawny

Post by AHB » 19:21 Sat 27 Feb 2016

Light brown in colour with a green hint on the rim; 20% opaque. Strong almond paste on the nose with a touch of VA almost hidden that adds to the complexity. A slight thickness to the texture, balanced and ethereal. At first full of coffee then a searing dose of highly flavoured acidity. A touch dry and acidic on the finish, reminiscent of a sercial madeira. Great lime and grapefruit bitter-sweet finish. 90/100. 24-Feb-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
