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

Haven't actually tried the 2000, I tried the 2001 (but it's not listed). Sounds very similar. A very rich dark wine, and very smooth. Thouroughly enjoyed this one.

Deep reddich purple all the way to the rim. This spent 6 years in Oak. Elementary school paste with light anise and pencil lead on the nose with a rich berry quality lurking beind it all. Rich in the mouth with a strong alcohol presence on the finish. Sweet fruit and lots of spice, black pepper, anise, clove, and a nice black berry quality to support it all. Though here they say it cannot age, I think this might gain from 2 or 3 years lying down. C5+A12+T16+O7=90 I liked this more as it sat open and if I was to re-rate would give it a T17 and O8 [90]

Graham's LBV 2005 has an intense and deepimpenetrable ruby colour. The nose has greatcomplexity, combining vibrant youthful aromasof jammy red fruits such as raspberries withhints of peppery spice. On the palate rich andfull-bodied, with concentrated flavours of wildberries and nuances of black chocolatebalanced by well structured tannins, leading toa long, firm finish.

While Vintage Port spends only two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged solely in cask and then bottled at between four and six years old. At the time of bottling it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking without the

Possesses attractive liquorice and floral aromas and fresh, ripe blackberry fruit flavours. Great rich fruit concentration with spicy complexity and depth, held together by superb structure and balance.
