NV Graham Six Grapes River Quintas

Post by AHB » 22:31 Sun 30 Apr 2017

Bottled 2017. Youthful red colour with a narrow rim; young and vibrant on the nose full of aggressive blackcurrant. Sweet and balanced on entry with floral blackcurrant, lots of fruit and a touch of dusty tannin. This is lovely, but very youthful and might well be better when softened with a little age - although the Symingtons are very clear that this is not a wine intended to be aged! 90/100. Drunk 04-Apr-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
