A dark, deep and reserved blend of intense red and purple pour from this bottle. Once in the glass, this port begs to be sipped. Although, this wine will only improve with age, even young the intense fig, chocolate, and tobacco smoke aromas and ones to be savored. On the palate, rich caramels, spices of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, and intense dried cherries. Once released I suggest to buy at least 3 bottles. One now for fun, one for about 10 years from now, and one to enjoy on that very special evening a good 40 years from now.

This is the second Port I ever purchased and I always have a soft sport for it. At 23 this is heading towards a mid-life crisis for collectors: drink or hold? If you have a case, then I suggest both. Right now it shows off a precocious personality, ultimately harmonious and enjoyable at the moment. Yet the tannins are still quite ripe today and the spirit is noticeable on the finish but that just might be the decanting regimen used for this bottle. This should improve over the next decade and then I will be drinking mine at about 35 years old.

The nose shows some spicy elements and an herbal essence that add intricacy to the fresh raspberry aroma that showed no outward sign of spirit. Finally! I have never been a fan of this VP and it has always been a thorn in my side, even when put in front of me in a handful of "blind" tests ("let's fool Roy"). However, this particular bottle made me think that at nearly 30, this wine has finally hit its stride. The alcohol did not stand out like a sore thumb which has been my main concern in every previous tasting. On the contrary, this seemed like a well-integrated, soft and smooth Port with plenty of stuffing. Bottles of this quality should drink best circa 2015-2025.

Gentle. Jammy, squashed strawberries and a little toffee. Beautifully balanced nose. The palate is wonderful, a little alcohol initially moves onto a peppery fruity palate. After a few hours, it’s got caramel, warm sugar... stunning, and the best port I have tasted to date.

The 2011 Graham's comes from the five quintas that have been the source for many years (Malvedos Tua Vila Velha das Lages and Vale de Malhadas). It represents a selection of the 131 pipes from a total production of 1 454 and is a blend of 40% Touriga Naçional 31% Touriga Franca 6% Sousão and 23% mixture of very old vines. It has a more "serious" bouquet compared to the Dow with beguiling scents of blackberry wild hedgerow tobacco and cloves. Straight-laced very well-defined and compelling the palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and supremely well-judged acidity. It is utterly harmonious with a pure core of ripe black cherries damson marmalade clove and spices and the finish lingers long in the mouth. The separation of "The Stone Terraces" vines certainly does not appear to have detracted from a great Graham's. 5 000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Great nose of crushed blackberry, currant and grape skin. Intense. Full-bodied, dense and beautiful, with big, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Very sweet. This is a superb young vintage Port. Could match or better the fabulous 2000 Graham. Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 2007 Graham Vintage Port 1500ml

Rich and chewy, with masses of blueberry, blackberry and raisin character. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a long, powerful finish. Big and juicy, with ultraripe fruit. Racy and full of class. Like cashmere in texture. Best after 2018. -JS Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 2007 Graham Vintage Port 1500ml

Grahamrsquo;s Cima Corgo sweetness covers the power of its structure, feeling round and polished, a sphere in the mouth, not a rough edge or a touch of harshness. If any individual element shows, itrsquo;s a drift of esteva and other green herb scents buried in the youth of the wine. The black fruit also hides its bulk; as it takes on air, it grows into a lithe and supple harmony with the spirit, the alcohol perceptible only at itrsquo;s inundated with fruit. Check on it on 2025.

Grapey, unformed, black raspberry liqueur and licorice-infused cassis notes leap from the glass of this opaque purple-colored wine. Sweet, plush, rich, and accessible, it is a forward, lush, concentrated effort that should drink well for two decades. While not one of Grahamrsquo;s most profound ports, it should evolve rapidly, providing immense crowd appeal.

Graham is a shining example of an established Port house pushing the boat out to make even better wines through better viticulture and winemaking technology. This is the greatest young Vintage Port from Graham I have ever tasted, and perhaps it will be better in the long term than the legendary 1948. It smells like freshly cut orchids, with loads of ripe, clean fruit, and then turns full-bodied, medium-sweet and very powerful in the mouth with big velvety tannins. It lasts for minutes on your palate. Therersquo;s great balance and class to this young Port. Best after 2014.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Offers a decadently fruity aroma, with peppery accents to the cherry, raspberry and dark currant flavors that are lithe and juicy. Grippy tannins grace the mocha- and chocolate-infused finish." -Wine Spectator
