This excellent Vintage has an intense colour with a deep purple rim. On the nose it shows a luscious ripeness, with attractive floral aromas and hints of black cherry. On the palate it imparts a full-bodied structure, typical of Graham's, packed with layers and layers of fruit and firm tannins. The very long, accomplished finish indicates a great Vintage for long-term ageing.
Still a bit compact, as the core of warm steeped fig, blackberry and black currant fruit hasn’t stretched out fully yet. However, there’s so much warm toffee, toasted peanut and singed alder coursing through that this is a fun drink now. A big, gutsy style. Should open up fully with a bit more time. Best from 2020 through 2035. 10,000 cases made
Blackberries, licorice, and melted asphalt stand out in this full-bodied, beautifully made vintage port's moderately intense bouquet. It is not one of the great Graham's ports, and is less sweet than normal, but it is full-bodied, rich, concentrated, and impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.
