On Tuesday 11th October 2011, at the RAF Club, was held a ‘square’ tasting of {Dow, Fonseca, Graham, Taylor} × {1963, 1966, 1970, 1977}. Our honoured guest was Cynthia Jenson, official blogger to the Symingtons.

o77, lated identified as T77: red, 50% opaque. Acrid mid-palate. Sour late-palate. Not as bad as this suggests.

Mid red in colour, 60% opaque. Very elegant on the nose, with lovely perfumed fruit. Balanced entry with some acidity and faint remnants of tannins; good fruit levels although slightly on the dry side. Lovely long finish with a delicious length. This is lovely port. Served blind and guessed to be the Graham. 88/100
