Drank over 3 nights. Shows some candied plum and a little anise. Decent acidity to help with a clean finish to it's credit. Not bad, but not memorable either, at least for a Graham's. It probably wouldn't have been made except for the anniversary and is now at its full maturity, drink up. The rating isn't a dig, but just allowing for more distinctive vintage ports.
Ruby core with quite a noticeable fade at the rim; lovely evolved red currant and dried blueberry on the nose, damsons, quite a heady hit of alcohol too; good weight on the palate, nice flavour, alcohol showing through a bit at this stage, unbalanced warming finish. This is enjoyable but would probably have been a lot better 5 years ago. Still not bad for £25, a really interesting 23 year old port.
