2004 Graham Porto Vintage Quinta dos Malvedos - Portugal, Douro, Porto (1/18/2018)
Drank over 3 nights, this changed a few times. On Night one it was all cherry vanilla. Quite luscious, it was forward and fresh. Night two it deepened, with more tannins, and some bitter chocolate notes. The vanilla backed off as well. While not quite as obviously pleasurable, it seemed more like what a youngish Port should be. Tonight it was wide open again, the tannins still lurking, but not as prominent as on Night 2. The vanilla never came back to the fore, so it was more black cherry fruit driven, with integrated alcohol (not remotely spirity) and a long, persistent finish. Lovely Port that is a good value as well.
