This is an extremely full-bodied, powerful wine, but it still retains a classy balance. Deep ruby, with chocolate and berry aromas, full-bodied, with anise and dried cherry flavors, full, hard tannins and a long finish. Good now but a few more yearsof bottle age would improve it. (JS, Web Only-1989)
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. (RP)
Charles Symington chose to serve this wine at his wedding – no greater praise! 1970 was the year the Syms bought Graham’s. Translucent ruby with rusty rim. Very complex tertiary bouquet, decongestant (aniseed?) aromas and wonderfully sweet but very far from sickly on the palate with some vestiges of tannin. Just beautiful balance with sufficient freshness and vitality. Still very vigorous. A remarkably youthful bottle. 18.5/20 points.
