1966 Graham's Vintage Port

SKU #980158 93 points Wine Spectator

 Elegant, silky and youthful, this is a sexy wine. Medium ruby-red, showing aromas of plums, chocolate and ripe fruit. The palate follows through with a bounty of sweet plum flavors and a fleshy mouth-feel. It should continue to improve with age. (JS, Web-1989)

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 1966, which I originally thought quite mediocre, has developed beautifully in the bottle and is a much finer vintage port that I suspected. (RP)  (1/1989)

K&L Notes

5 stars from Michael Broadbent! And 93-94 points Neal Martin: "This is an outstanding Grahams Vintage. A pale tawny colour as you would expect, followed by a delicate, yet sophisticated nose with aroma of coffee beans, earth, leather and lavender. The palate is medium-bodied, supple with good acidity. Very soft and sensuous. Fig and mocha on the finish. The type of port that deserves a burning log-fire and Verdi. Drink now-2020. Tasted December 2004." (Wine Journal, 9/2008)

- 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.


- 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.
