Graham's 09 Quinta Dos Malvedos Vintage Port W. & J. Graham's Douro E Porto 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Ports admirably show the Graham’s house style with their expressive floral characteristics, opulent black berry fruit flavours and racy flair. They are usually more approachable when young than classic Vintage Ports. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 92 points by Wine Enthusiast: Perfumed wine, initially soft, then showing some mineral character to go with the spice and acidity. That puts it on the dry side, with a smoky character coming through the juicy fruit. For aging.

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

Gorgeous bouquet redolent of chocolate, mintand spice. Luxurious and lusty palate, showingcassis and layers of blackcurrant and blackplum. Big and bold but in a very polished,attractive manner.

Dunkelrote Farbe. Der 1998 Quinta dos Malvedos steht in der klassischen Tradition des Hauses Graham: intensive rubinrote Farbe, in der Nase eine üppige Reichhaltigkeit mit intensiven jugendlichen Aromen von roten Früchten und einer Andeutung von Minze und Eukalyptus. Am Gaumen aussergewöhnlich kräftig und voll mit Lagen von Früchten und festen Tanninen, die ihre Reichhaltigkeit bis zu einem langen süssen Abgang halten. Kann sofort getrunken werden, dank seinem Körper und seiner Struktur wird er sich aber noch über viele Jahre hinweg verbessern.

Vintage: 1988 08/27/2011

Ripe, opulent and delicious. Beautifully peppery and fruity in flavor, with a silky smooth texture that belies its high alcohol and young age. A very long finish echoes black pepper and chocolate. Tempting to drink now for its fruitiness, but probabl... Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1988 Graham Malvedos Vintage Port 750ml
