A candidate for wine of the vintage, the 2007 Graham’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 25–30 years in the cellar and drink well through 2050, probably longer. It is a tour de force.
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. It’s easy to underrate a wine that’s so sweet in the early going, but this has the density, vibrancy and spine for three or four decades of development in bottle.
Graham is another one of the great port houses, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles in vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post-World War II era... profound, long-lived... great 1977.
Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. Yes, it is made in a sweeter style than the other ports, but it is a fabulous wine because of a dazzling level of black cherry fruit, an enormous structure, and staggering depth, dimension, and length. It is forward, as are all the 1985s, and I would speculate that this port will be approaching maturity by 2000 and will keep 15-20 years thereafter.
One of the greatest Graham vintage Ports ever produced. This is a monster of a wine, featuring incredibly intense aromas of cassis and ripe fruit. Full-bodied and supertannic. It's got what it takes.
Deep opaque black with a ruby rim. Full-bodied. Moderately tannic. Mild sweetness. Sandalwood, black fruit, to ruby rim. Dark brooding aromas lead into a firm extracted palate. Currently quite closed but it show extreme richness and depth of flavors. For long term cellaring.
Tasting Graham's is akin to chewing on a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham's. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2035.
Richly coloured, the Graham has dense and powerful aromatics, with crushedblackberry and plum fruit flavours entwined with rich spice, earth and hints ofblack cocoa. A magnificent weight on the palate captures the profundity of thebest fruit from the best A grade vineyards, with Quinta Do Malvedos, as always,at the centre of the action. Sweetness and power vie for attention; ripeness isall, and all-embracing in this fabulous wine. (Simon Field MW, Berrys' Port Buyer)
