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.
This wine is going through a dumb period at the moment. It is closed and not giving much on the palate. It is still a big, hard and tightly knit wine. Deep purple-ruby, with intense floral, cassis and prune aromas, full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and extremely hard tannins. Drink 1996-1998.
