This Vintage Port displays many of the typical Graham aromas of ripe plum and esteva (gum cistus) and is pleasantly smooth on the palate despite its youth. It is full and rich in the mouth with fresh blackberry and red plum notes. Despite the hallmark Graham sweetness in the mouth the finish is long and clean.

Graham’s 2000 Vintage displays a deep ruby colour. On the nose it is packed with aromas of dark fruits such as plums and blackberries. On the palate it has the typical Graham richness and concentration, full-bodied, with great length and intensity on the finish. Approachable now but is still 4 to 5 years from its prime, after which it will age superbly for decades.
Chocolate minty nose with blackberry and dog rose notes. Gum cistus herbal palate with real length and flavour - structured for the long haul.

Aromatically this was a bit reticent, but some coaxing allowed the red fruit notes to emerge. Medium weight and seemingly more vinous than either the 2003 or 2007. Smoky and spicy black cherry, cocoa and eucalyptus flavors melded beautifully. The 2000 is still very tannic and will support long term cellaring, improving for many years and showing more grip than either previous Port. Drink now or cellar through the middle decades of the century. A gorgeous young Vintage Port, it deserved more hours in decanter and it would have performed even better. But why quibble about a great Graham’s like this?
Deep, youthful opaque colour; lovely perfume and surprisingly open, very pure fruit; opulent, dense, very powerful, forceful tannins, big, ripe and very fine and rich. Keep at least ten years. The first Graham vintage to be made partially (36%) in robotic lagares.
Wine Spectator's 2003 Top 100: Graham's Vintage Port 2000 ranked 9th in this elite list of the world's best wines.
The Graham is simply stunning… the top Port of the Vintage.
Graham is a shining example of an established Port house pushing the boat out to make even better wines through better viticulture and wine-making methodology. This is the greatest young Vintage Port from Graham I have ever tasted, and perhaps it will be better in the long term than the legendary 1948. It smells like freshly picked orchids, with loads of ripe, clean fruit and then turns full-bodied, medium-sweet and very powerful in the mouth with big velvety tannins. It lasts for minutes on your palate. There's great balance and class to this young Vintage port. Best after 2014.
Very good colour. Splendid nose. Real quality here. Concentrated and fruity. Elegant and complex. Lots of dimension. Full, very fine tannins. Excellent depth of fruit. Lots of grip. This has even more to it than the Fonseca. Excellent. From 2020.
Velvety intensity. Remarkably sweet as always, floral scents, glorious flavour, richness masking tannin. Great wine.
Score: 5 Stars
Grapy, unformed, black raspberry liqueur and licorice-infused cassis notes leap from the glass of this opaque purple-colored wine. Sweet, plush, rich, and accessible, it is a forward, lush, concentrated effort that should drink well for two decades. While not one of Graham's most profound ports, it should evolve rapidly, providing immense crowd appeal. Drink: 2002-2022
