Tasting Notes

Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. The 1970 is a monumental vintage port and one of the greats of the vintage. It begs to be drunk now, although it will last for at least another two decades.

Raisiny, spicy, mellow. Lovely. Vigorous. Lots to it. This should keep going strong for the next 25 years. Drink 2000-2025. Date tasted 22nd Sep 08.
