Decanter #2: the darkest port of the night. Closed heavy nose, with dark cherries. To taste a little dry, gloupy, heavy and closed. Reports that 1980 Graham was drier than is usual for the house mis-led me into guessing Graham: actually Dow. Fine port, needing more cellar time.

Very deep red colour with a solid and opaque centre. Rich blackcurrants on the nose that get more pronounced as you swirl. Tannic still in the mouth, still very young, solid and powerful. Superb complexity and development in the mid-palate. The aftertaste is lovely, and lasts a very long time that remains sticky on the lips dor a good time. A great port that will be better in 20 years. 7/8 or 92/100.
