1977 Graham's Vintage Port
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
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. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Drink now through 2018.
Really perfumed - cedarwood and cigar box. Cedarwood and sandalwood and cinnamon - incense-like. Rich and generous on the palate, but perhaps not as fresh as 1970, more nutty. Drink 2005-2030. (18/20 points)
