Graham 1994

Winemaker's Notes:

Still fairly closed on the nose though more open and expansive on the palate with tight and compact plummy black fruits with good fresh, crisp tannins, and spice.

W. & J. Graham & Co.:
Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal.

Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal. The brothers, who already came from a successful entrepreneurial family, dedicated themselves to producing a line of fine vintage Ports. In 1890, they became one of the first Port quintas (estates) to source fruit from the upper Douro Valley and established the property Quinta dos Malvedos. The quality of the grapes from this vineyard is a major contribution to the finesse of their Ports. In that same year, the brothers opened the Graham’s Lodge in Vila Nova di Gaia, to store and showcase the wines. Vintages of Graham’s Port became famous for their structure and elegance, particularly 1909, 1912, 1924, 1927 and especially 1948, a wine Jancis Robinson said was among the finest she’d ever tasted. In 1970, Graham’s was sold to the Symington family, who themselves had a legacy of quality Port production dating back centuries. They have upheld the traditions begun by the Graham’s and continue to produce outstanding Ports as sole proprietors of the operation. Aside from vintage, Graham’s also produces Ports in every style from Tawny to Ruby, Late Bottle Vintage (LBV), Crusted and White, as well as their value release the Six Grapes.  Read less

Blackberries, licorice, and melted asphalt stand out in this full-bodied, beautifully made vintage portrsquo;s moderately intense bouquet. It is not one of the great Grahamrsquo;s ports, and is less sweet than normal, but it is full-bodied, rich, concentrated, and impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2025.

Saturated, deep violet-ruby color. Supersweet nose conveys a distinctly liqueur-like quality to the flamboyant dark fruit, licorice pastille and chocolate aromas. Sweet, lush, round and hugely concentrated, with extraordinary lift and purity for a vintage port with this kind of ripeness and thickness of material. The sexy dark chocolate quality carries through in the mouth. Finishes with outstanding breadth, length and sweetness of fruit. Itandrsquo;s easy to underrate a wine thatandrsquo;s so sweet in the early going, but this has the density, vibrancy and spine for three or four decades of development in bottle.

A classic vintage of Graham’s, the cool, balanced fruitiness of 2007 plays right into the style of the house. This is harmonious and powerful, with pure fresh fruit that bursts in the mouth then lasts, sustained, as the flavors of the Douro’s ancient varieties cascade for minutes in fascinating interplay and detail. As luscious as it may be, the fruit still has red tones, along with a sensual texture. The schist tannins are muscular, sculpted into soft curves, Apollonian in their power. Compelling to drink as a young wine, this has what it takes to mature for 50 years or more.

A candidate for wine of the vintage, the 2007 Grahamandrsquo;s vintage Port is complete is every way. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up an ethereal perfume of smoke, mineral, Asian spices, incense, an amalgam of ripe black fruits, and a hint of chocolate in the background. This leads to a dense, superrich, plush, opulent wine that hides its structure under all the fruit. Vibrant, impeccably balanced, and exceptionally lengthy, it will easily age for another 25andndash;30 years in the cellar and drink well through 2050, probably longer. It is a tour de force.

[Barrel tasting] Great nose of crushed blackberry, currant and grape skin. Intense. Full-bodied, dense and beautiful, with big, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Very sweet. This is a superb young vintage Port. Could match or better the fabulous 2000 Graham.
