1970 Graham's Vintage Port
This is an extremely full-bodied, powerful wine, but it still retains a classy balance. Deep ruby, with chocolate and berry aromas, full-bodied, with anise and dried cherry flavors, full, hard tannins and a long finish.
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. The 1970 is a monumental vintage port and one of the greats of the vintage.
Bricky garnet. Lovely fig aroma but also some Victoria plum freshness. A little smoky, very complex, and a touch of furniture polish and leather but still so fresh. Victoria plum sweetness too. Smooth and powerful and finishes fresh and immensely long. 18.5/20 points.
