Graham’s Port has been renowned for producing some of the finest Port wines for almost 200 years. Owned by the Symington’s since 1970, Graham’s is the only remaining British Port company independently owned by a single family. It was also one of the first Port house to invest in its own vineyards and is now at the cutting edge of innovation in winemaking techniques.
Deep, saturated ruby. Initially reticent aromas of dark chocolate and nuts; showed a high-pitched eucalyptus quality as it opened in the glass. Then almost shockingly huge and rich in fruit, with wonderfully lush, complex flavors of cassis, violet, minerals, spices, flowers and exotic chocolate. The tannins are seductively sweet, yet the finish boasts terrific focus, not to mention outstanding persistence. In terms of sheer palate-saturating flavor and texture, this runs a close second to Fonseca among these 2003s. For long aging.- 95 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
