The 1983 is a very fine vintage at Graham’s. It’s probably the best port of the year, even though Warre at its best is a contender, and Taylor is not far off. This bottle confirms the favourable impressions from earlier bottles. Elegant and cedary nose, not as sweet as some other vintages at Graham’s, vibrant and youthful, arguably a bit hot on the finish, but the complex flavours of cherries, warm spices, dark chocolate, flowers and eucalyptus are particularly lovely. Fresh and still with ample tannic grip. Holds up effortlessly over two days in the decanter. This should last another ten years with ease, but it will dry out eventually.

Decanted 12 hours. Lovely Port with good dark color and charming nose. Creamy and generous wine with long aftertaste. Dried fruit, nuts, chocolate and coffee. Will last some time still but not a top year.

Five years since last tasted and still going strong. The usual struggle with the cork, but no seepage evident. Markedly fuller and fruitier than recently tasted 77’s. A perfect wine for the season.
