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.

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

Vintage: 2007 01/10/2013

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.

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.

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.

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.
