NV Graham 40YO Tawny

Post by JacobH » 22:36 Sun 06 Dec 2020

Brown fading to almost green. The nose is complex but distant. Does not give much away. Mouth has good acidity with some oranges (similar to the 20 year old). Good caramel flavours but not particularly sweet. This is a good wine but perhaps not as a good as some other 40 year olds.

Tasted at: Graham 200 Tasting with Anthony and Tom Symington

Date: 2nd December 2020

Rated*: P

* A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: N—No; P—Possibly; or C—Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.
