For The Love of Port

    (Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port) From a half bottle. Lovely colour - this wine still has plenty of life left in it despite bottling in a smaller format. Sweet fruit, with floral notes, and a darker, tarry, background nuance on the nose. No disappointment on the palate which offers plentiful fruit, good tannins and a well integrated slug of alcohol bound together in a smooth and creamy texture. Straight down the line, sweet, rounded almost creamy Port. Approachable now but will keep for several years in the cellar.

    (Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port) A good dark hue, with a moderate depth of colour. The nose and palate at first seem unexciting, but this wine simply needs some aeration to get going. Like other 1986 single quinta Ports I have tasted this has plenty of fruit on the nose, together with a tarry, slightly herby, sweet edge. On the palate there is plenty of fruit, structure and grip. Good, sweet chewy fruit and sweet, round texture. The tannins really dominate the finish. This wine isn't quite ready, and, although quite approachable now, would benefit from a few more years in the cellar. Nicely balanced.
