Graham's Lbv 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense and impenetrable ruby colour, the nose has great complexity with vibrant red berry fruits and peppery spice. The palate is rich and full bodied with concentrated nuances of dark chocolate balanced by well structured tannins and a long finish. LIMITED STOCK

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

A firm, dry wine, very upright and elegant. It has power, but it's the initially austere perfumes that dominate. Dried currants go with black plum skins and definite tannins.

Orientated toward the floral, rose scents of touriga franca, this gentle, sweet wine turns a bit lean and warm in the finish. It's smooth in the middle, for a cheese course.

Sweet, fragrant, very luscious and soft. It is fruity and easy with some youthful freshness, and stalky, dried currant flavors. Certainly not intense, but immediately appealing.

Features lots of ripe fruit, with plenty of blueberry and blackberry character. Full-bodied, offering velvety and round tannins and a fruity finish. A fruit-forward style. Drink now.

With its dense color and sweet fruits, this is wine that works well, with a great rich, soft texture. There is a concentrated juicy and jammy character, with final approachable spice and acidity.
