Graham 1984 Quinta dos Malvedos SQVP: Tasting Notes

This page provides an overview of my notes on the Graham 1984 Quinta dos Malvedos SQVP. Apologies if the notes are brief (or non-existent); they are mainly recorded for my benefit with public distribution being a secondary priority!

The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Similar colour to the 1982, though perhaps a touch lighter. Very floral on the nose, certainly more elegant than the 1982. On tasting, it was immediately very attractive. Well balanced and elegant, although perhaps there was an ever-so-slight amount of astringency at the end of the aftertaste.

A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: No; Possibly; or 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.
