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.

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.

Grahamrsquo;s 1991 Vintage Port gets my nod as the port of the vintage. While keeping in mind that Grahamrsquo;s aims for a sweeter-styled port, there is no doubting the opaque purple/black color, or the explosive nose of black fruits, licorice, spring flowers, and tar. Thick and full-bodied, with a satiny texture and a blockbuster, alcoholic finish, this is a top-notch vintage port.

An expansive chord of mineral and black fruit flavor, this vintage of Grahamrsquo;s is all-enveloping in its sheer power. The tannins and the fruit strike a balance with dense, floral, purple-black flavors over crushed stone. That schisty grip of the tannin ends up feeling supple and curvaceous, defining the boundaries of the fruit rather than restricting it. The best vintage of Grahamrsquo;s in recent memory, this 2003 should be drinking well from 2025 to 2046, and should live well beyond that.

Plum and blackberry on the nose, with hints of dried violets. Wet earth. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, very chewy and rich. Long and caressing. Still very tight. Give it time. Very layered and structured. Much better than I remember. Impressive. rsquo;77/rsquo;85/rsquo;97 blind Port retrospective. Best after 2010.

Violets, roses, spices, and candied dark fruits emanate from the glass of the murky black/purple colored 2003 Graham Vintage Port. After four days of air, this winersquo;s aromatics sweetened further, displaying jammy blackberry and blueberry scents. Bold, full-bodied, and expansive, the Graham benefited the most from extensive contact with air of all the 2003s tasted for this report. This opulently jammy wine assaults the palate with powerful yet soft layers of oily, candied red fruits as well as notes of tar and hints of mocha. A highly concentrated effort, it is creamy textured, suave, and reveals an admirably long finish filled with additional layers of dark fruits intermingled with spices. Projected maturity: 2030ndash;2055.
