Graham's 2007

Release Notes

Very profound and intense deep purple colour. Rich and complex floral aromas of violets and eucalyptus from the Malvedos and Lages Touriga Franca give a very special elegance to this wine. Very attractive rich blackberry flavoured fruit with excellent texture. The sheer power, weight, complexity and balance of this wine guarantee its longevity.

Tasting Notes

Roy Hersh critic source
2011 tasting note year

Opaque magenta with a purplish edge. Lush floral aromas with mocha and chocolate. Plum and boysenberry flavors with medium ripe tannins and a seamlessly, long finish. From a small crop that yielded only 72,000 bottles. I think it’s safe to say the 2007 Graham’s should age very well for 30-40 years.

Score: 94+/100

Very deep, opaque colour; open, opulent, very rich, pure and aromatic, not at all closed in yet; rich and powerful with strong muscular tannins and a lovely sweet character lingering on the finish.

Score: 18.5/20

Rich and chewy, with masses of blueberry, blackberry and raisin character. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a long, powerful finish. Big and juicy, with ultraripe fruit. Racy and full of class. Like cashmere in texture. Best after 2018. 6,000 cases made.

Score: 96/100

2010 tasting note year

A candidate for wine of the vintage, the 2007 Graham’s Vintage Port is complete in every way.  Opaque purple-colored, it offers up an ethereal perfume of smoke, mineral, Asian spices, incense, an amalgam of ripe black fruits, and a hint of chocolate in the background.  This leads to a dense, super-rich, plush, opulent wine that hides its structure under all the fruit.  Vibrant, impeccably balanced, and exceptionally lengthy, it will easily age for another 25-30 years in the cellar and drink well through 2050, probably longer. It is a tour de force.

Score: 97/100

Intense aromas of blackberry, wet earth and grape follow through to a full body, with medium-to-light sweetness, very big tannins and a mouth filling finish. Round and delicious already. Has the stuffing to age. Powerful.

Score: 96/100

Rich, ripe, opulent with a lovely morello cherry nose. Voluptuous in its richness and sweetness. Impressive and upfront but with structure and substance. Broad, ripe tannins leading to a peacock's tail of a finish.

Score: 19/20
