2004 Graham Malvedos

Medium rim, youthful in colour but without any purple. Smooth entry with gentle and sweet fruit, very refined and pure with hints of flowers. Powerful tannins show on the late palate to give a wonderful presence. An alcohol tingle leads the aftertaste before a very long and very big finish of dark chocolate and dried raspberries. Very impressive - drinkable now or over the next 20 years. 91/100. 24-Feb-16.
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
