The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Darker than the Graham’s 2006 LBV and a similar, perhaps a touch darker than the 2004 Graham’s Crusted. Very good, subtle smell. Good fruit; red cherries. In the mouth well balanced tannins and subtle fruit. A very long, elegant aftertaste. Really very good LBV; this must be one of the best available.

Tasted at: Davy’s Tasting at the Woolgate

Date: 14th November 2013

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 weighted slightly by their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port might receive a C rating for Certainly good which it might not were it to be a Vintage Port. 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.
