External Reviews for Graham
A classic vintage of Grahamandrsquo;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 Douroandrsquo;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.
At 20% alcohol, this perfectly balanced Port is cooler in tone than many contemporary table wines. The 2007 vintage grew pure fruit flavors into this Porto, emphasizing freshness rather than concentration and dehydration in the grapes. Thereandrsquo;s no sense of heat, just a surety that this muscular wine will live for decades.

Lush and smooth with vanilla, spice and floral notes; rich and deep; long, balanced and elegant; excellent structure.
The nose here can only be described as frustratingly coy but very, very pretty. Core notes of warm blackberry and black cherry are joined by violets, black pepper, cloves, licorice and a touch of mocha. The palate promises at a wine of great purity, elegance and balance to come. Layer upon layer of dark fruit and spice flavours seamlessly wrap around crisp acidity and a wonderful texture of very fine, firm tannins. Very, very long finish. Drink 2025–2060+. Tasted August 2009.
A Port for aging, as you would expect from Grahamandrsquo;s. The wine is dry, firm, textured, solid and dense. The fruit flavors of fresh cranberry and black currant are a supporting act at this stage. Classic vintage.
