1970 Graham's Vintage Port (Previously $200)
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. (RP)
3.9° Baumé. From a magnificent magnum. Pale crimson. Sweet and round. Easy and round with rose-petal notes and quite firm tannins. Very appetising but not that sweet. Dusty finish but good stuff. Slightly drying out now though. (18/20 points)
