1985 Graham

Post by JacobH » 22:38 Sun 06 Dec 2020

Deep but translucent red. Very concentrated nose. Lovely aromas with deep complexity. Very moorish. In the mouth, a touch of acidity that is not present on the others. Lots of red cherry. After that an initial touch of acidity which immediately falls away. Distant tannins, too. Long, lovely aftertaste. Sugar is present but balanced. Very good.

Tasted at: Graham 200 Tasting with Anthony and Tom Symington

Date: 2nd December 2020

Rated*: C

* 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.
