Graham Port, 1948

Graham Port, 1948


Vintage Port
Description: 5 Stars - Michael Broadbent.

Rich coffee/caramel flavour. Incredibly concentrated and rich, almost syrup like in its intensity. Graham's 1948 is a truly magical Vintage with great class and power, still youthful in colour and showing continuing ageing potential. This wine confirmed Graham's as a first division Vintage house.

Reviews:
"Warm, open and inviting rosehip colour. Delicious fruit, fig, crisp, liquorice. Failry sweet, lean but lovely with hot finish." Score: 5 stars Michael Broadbent.

Fonseca Port, 1948


Vintage Port
Description: 1948 Fonseca Vintage Port – Another UK bottling from pristine storage conditions, checked carefully prior to its purchase in London by a friend in CA. It was only my 3rd time consuming this wine in the past five years and I know that Suckling had bestowed 100 points on this VP. This was a far better showing than the bottle that a friend opened in 2001. Tawny-centered color with a light yellowish edge, with surprisingly light color overall, not what I am used to. In contrast to the massive masculine style of the Taylor, this showed the smooth elegance and feminine style of a great well-aged vintage Port.

Warre Vintage Port, 1948


Vintage Port
Description: Warre’s Vintage port wines combine elegance, length and balance whilst still retaining the underlying rich opulence of great Vintage Port. This unsurpassed style is derived from the inherent characteristics of Warre’s two principal vineyards: Quinta da Cavadinha and Quinta do Retiro Antigo. They complement each other very well. Cavadinha’s location, aspect and altitude translate into a cooler ripening cycle providing the freshness, fine subtle floral aromas and ideal acidity, the latter contributing significantly to the wines’ longevity. Retiro Antigo’s location in the hotter Rio Torto Valley,
