2011 Graham LBV

Deep red, 95% opaque. Over-ripe blueberry nose with some faint blue cheese from the spirit. Smooth in texture, initially lacking some fruit but recovers on the mid-palate, where the tannins also appear but the wine peaks on the late palate where all the components fall into place. The aftertaste is fruity and the finish big. An odd port, very unbalanced across the palate. 84/100. 04-May-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)
