K&L Notes

Graham's has a reputation as a producer of outstanding Vintage Port for well over a century. These wines are renowned for their remarkable richness, concentration and firm tannic structure: a combination which yields impressive longevity. Graham's Vintage Ports consistently attain the highest ratings in tastings and invariably attract very high bids at fine wine auctions. Vintage Ports are only made in years of exceptionally high quality harvests, which on average occur two or three times in a decade. The weather in the vineyards is the principal determining factor: conditions must be ideal throughout the growing season, as well as during the subsequent harvest. Graham's extraordinary quality is the result of the unique characteristics of the five vineyards that contribute to the Vintage Port.

    I love the 2016 Graham's. It has a lovely, bright, blue and red fruited aromatic profile, with hints of herbs and mint (a hallmark of the house according to Dominic Symington). On the palate, the generous sweetness is deftly balanced by bright fruit and pitch perfect acidity, perhaps due to the fresh harvest conditions. Graham's also has a tiny bit of 19th century old vine fruit which finds its way into their vintage ports, as well as a notable amount of Sousao blended in, a grape known for its acidity. In short, this is a fantastic Graham's which is surprisingly precocious now, but of course will age beautifully for decades.
