This is a wine with a very attractive nose, reminiscent of blackberries and violets. It is still very firm in the mouth with masses of tannins, and intensely rich, succulent fruit. Graham's 1991 Vintage is of superb quality, showing great promise for long-term ageing.
Primarily from Quinta dos Malvedos and Quinta dos Lages.
Graham's 1991 Vintage Port gets my nod as the port of the vintage. While keeping in mind that Graham'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.
Lovely plum and coffee aromas open to a full-bodied palate, with sweet, decadent fruit. Velvety, with a long finish. Lots going on. '91/'92 Port retrospective. Best after 2007. –JS
