2015 Graham's "The Stone Terraces" Vintage Port

SKU #1321117 96 points Wine Spectator

 Flattering, with a gorgeous, seductive and showy display of warm plum sauce, blueberry reduction and chocolate-covered acaí berry flavors rushing forth. Light milk chocolate and black licorice notes check in through the finish, which is juicy and open in feel. Best from 2028 through 2040.  (8/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 The Stone Terraces Vintage Port is a field blend, heavy on the Touriga Nacional, although not so listed, from two vineyards with stone terraces at Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos. It comes in with 106 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is gorgeous, with the potential for significant further development. Tight and focused, it is also refined, elegant and very sophisticated. It shows enough backbone to age well, although you might be able to approach this young Porto earlier than indicated. That said, it will certainly need some bottle age to gain complexity. Laced at the moment with primary fruit, raspberries mingling with plums, it is lifted, aromatic and delicious, lingering beautifully on the finish. Its purity of fruit makes it very appealing and sometimes stunning. Its finesse is exceptional, too. It could, perhaps, use a bit more concentration, but it is firing on all burners elsewhere. It is one of the 2015s that, I suspect, people will just love to drink even if it never quite improves to the point of sensational. Here's hoping it fleshes out a bit, comes together and merits an uptick in time. This has been released. There were just 4,800 bottles produced.(MS)  (8/2017)

 An elegant wine with beautifully integrated tannins, this is concentrated as well as fruity. Its structure and blackberry fruits are sweet and ripe. The perfumes of this wine leave a stylish, fragrant aftertaste. Drink from 2027.  (10/2017)

 This is a single vineyard port from the farm of Quinta do Malvedos. Smells like ink with a dark and earth aroma. Spicy. Dried flowers. Full and rich with a slightly drier edge to this. Nice finish with dusty tannins. A beauty already. 400 cases made. This really grows on you. Long finish. Drink in 2023.  (5/2017)

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
Sub-Region:

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
