Grahams Port, 1977
Description and Reviews:
***92 Points Aggregated Critic Score***
The 1977 Graham's vintage port is a stunning example of a fully declared vintage. Intense candied fruit aromas intermingle with cinnamon and clove spice leading to a palate of sweet jammy figs and milk chocolate notes. A fine port with long lingering finish that is ready for drinking now but, obviously as with all great ports, has many years ahead of it.
"...it's outstanding quality... Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, mint and violet. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and lots of berry and cherry fruit. Very fruity and fresh. Long and lively. Delicious now, but will improve."
James Suckling , Wine Spectator 2007
"Quite deep crimson but with an evolved ruby to brick rim. Rich, round nose – seems at first almost fully evolved and yet with a real punch of acidity and, right at the end a kick of tannin. Lots of interest and life. A can can dancer. Complete and with lots still to give."
Jancis Robinson , jancisrobinson.com 2004
"All succulent fruit, luscious and supple, sweet but balanced. Generous and satisfying fruit-cake sweetness contrasts black-pepper tannins. Fresh and bright."
Joshua Greene , Wine & Spirits Magazine
When mature this port will need to be decanted to remove sediment. Serve at room temperature on its own or with vintage mature blue cheeses such as stilton Cashel Blue, Roquefort, Gorgonzola and Saint Augur Blue. Vintage port is also good with chocolate - a flattering accompaniment to top quality hand-made chocolates and artisan chocolate bars.
