...Sweet, plush, rich, and accessible, it is a forward, lush, concentrated effort that should drink well for two decades. While not one of Graham's most profound ports, it should evolve rapidly, providing immense crowd appeal. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 2000 Graham Vintage Port 750ml

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.


Winemaker's Notes:

Established in 1820, W & J Graham is one of the most famous names in the Port Trade and has long been synonymous with the greatest Vintage Ports. The Symington Family acquired the company from the Graham’s family in 1970, so today Graham’s remains a wholly family-owned firm. At the heart of Graham’s Port is the famous Quinta dos Malvedos in the upper reaches of the Douro Valley. The old winery was completely renovated in 2000 and it is now equipped with three of the revolutionary robotic lagares that ‘tread’ the grapes. Alongside these are the ancient granite lagares where some of the harvest is still trodden by human foot. This outstanding Vintage displays many of the typical Graham’s aromas of ripe plum and “esteva” (gum cistus) and is pleasantly smooth on the palate despite its youth. It is full and rich in the mouth with fresh blackberry and red plum notes. Despite the hallmark Graham’s sweetness in the mouth the finish is long and clean. James Suckling for Wine Spectator gives it 98 points and says, "Graham is a shinning example of an established Port house pushing the boat out to make even better wines through better viticulture and wine-making methodology. 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 picked orchids, with loads of ripe, clean fruit, and then turns full-bodied, medium-sweet and very powerful in the mouth with big velvety tannins.
