Today I harvested lots of fresh rhubarb in order to make more wine and pies. The good cat Moth-Gractor helped me with the task. Later on, after starting a batch of rhubarb wine (my second of the season) I enjoyed a few sips of the Graham’s 2009 Late Bottled Vintage Port, which I had been meaning to review since Christmas.
Appearance: very dark red, 20%
Nose: ripe blackberries and cherries, figs, smoke
Palate: rich dark high percentage cocoa chocolate, figs, cherries, strawberries
Finish: very smooth, hint of maraschino cherry juice
Rating: 4/5 Excellent
Thank you (again) to Tasha, who gave me this bottle for Christmas!
