Port in the 21st Century with the School of Port

At the Big Fortified Tasting

Port is part of culture in the UK has been a primary market for centuries. It is widely available and a solid bridge between the two countries. 

Mr Symington recommended to drink port cool, "room temperature" today is likely to be quite a bit higher than in the past

Tasting notes:

Malvasia, moscato
Primary flavors, fresh, zesty even and yet with a touch of sweet at the end.
Score 90

Freshness is gone, nutty.
Score 88

3.  Graham 20 YO
Big bottle going around the room for this wine. Full body, round structure, good balance. Jammy even.
Score 86

Freshness lingers on yet tannins make themselves felt. Like the previous wine this is a bit jammy, a bit too much perhaps. Nutty flavors.
Score 89

Vintage (less than 1% of production of port). Deep ruby color, tannins still too powerful.
Score 87

Ripe red fruits, complex, jammy.
Score 88
