Mature red colour with a pink edge; 40% opaque. Nothing on the nose other than some harsh cranberry, but this is very faint. Light bodied entry but a delicious and fragrant mid-palate with lots of light fruit. Delicate candied cherry and tobacco on the palate. A lovely aftertaste full of typical Graham's Christmas Cake, but sweet and rather light. Lingering and lovely finish with a sweet jelly-bean finish. Too many gaps to show as a great port; perhaps this was under-decanted. 88/100. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

25% opacity, red brown. Soft, elegant nose, dusty strawberries. Elegant and refined in the mouth, nice balance, dusty strawberries again.
