Tasting Notes

Axel Probst critic

World of Fine Wine source
2016 tasting note year
Bright red color. Complex bouquet, with red berry fruits and chocolate. Structured palate, with chocolate, cherry and the first hints of toffee and malty. Long finish. Drink to its 100th birthday. 98.

Richard Mayson critic source
2010 tasting note year

Very good youthful colour, still dark garnet and only just beginning to brown on the rim; dense, solid, foursquare aromas, fine, rich and scented with lots more to give; similarly dense and rich on the palate, remarkably youthful, wonderful multi-dimensional bitter chocolate fruit, solid backbone, lovely structure and ripe tannins. Goes on and on in the mouth. UK bottled.

Score: 5 Stars

With a very attractive pale red rim surrounding a deep crimson centre. Super classic Graham nose of mature red fruits, with hints of mint and eucalyptus. On the palate, smooth and complex, with fine tannins and a very long finish.

Soft, mature plums and roses nose. Soft and mellow on the palate. Meatiness, with a touch of spirit at the end. Lingering red cherries in liqueur.

2001 tasting note year

[Nov 2000] in magnums, a lovely soft ruby colour. Classic nose, liquorice, touch of tar. Leaner than expected but lovely. Most recently [2001] some colourless but superb bouquet, flavour and texture. Now - 2030.

Score: 5 stars

1999 tasting note year

Full, vigorous, rich and classy on the palate. Not too sweeet. This is a big concentrated, very fine example. Bags of life ahead of it.

Score: 19/20


International Wine Challenge (competition) source
1994 tasting note year

The attractive nose is showing good fruit and an aroma of peppermints. On the palate, there is excellent structure to what is a classic vintage port.

Score: Gold Medal Winner, 1994

James Suckling critic

Vintage Port (book, Suckling, 1990) source
1989 tasting note year

Elegant, silky and youthful, this is a sexy wine.  Medium ruby-red, showing aromas of plums, chocolate and ripe fruit.  The palate follows through with a bounty of sweet plum flavours and a fleshy mouth-feel.  It should continue to improve with age.

Score: 93/100

Robert Parker critic

Wine Advocate (magazine) source
1989 tasting note year

The 1966, which I originally thought quite mediocre, has developed beautifully in the bottle and is a much finer vintage port than I suspected.  It should be drunk now as it is not likely to get any better.

Score: 88/100
