Graham's Vintage Port Reviews



98 Pointz James Suckling


“Aromas of dried fruits, raisins, and Christmas cake. Some chocolate undertones too, plus licorice and wet earth. Full body, medium sweet with gorgeous depth and intensity of fruit. So long and beautiful. What an amazing finish already. So sexy.... this will go on for decades.”



98 Pointz Wine Spectator

#9 Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2003


“Plush, ripe, and really packed, with a mix of warmed cassis, plum reduction, and fig compote notes that just won't quit, all backed by hints of melted red licorice, warmed fruitcake, and mulling spice notes. The long finish is fruit-coated but ripples with energy. This is really taking its time to come around fully as it remains one of the wines of the vintage.—Blind 2000 Vintage Port retrospective.”



94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“Grapy, unformed, black raspberry liqueur and licorice-infused cassis notes leap from the glass of this opaque purple-colored wine. Sweet, plush, rich, and accessible, it is a forward, lush, concentrated effort that should drink well for two decades.”



94 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar


“Saturated black-ruby. Superripe, bottomless nose of black fruits, mocha, bitter chocolate, and flowers. Hugely sweet, dense, and rich. A port of outstanding opulence and creamy texture; deceptively easy to taste. Substantial, sweet, spreading tannins are buried under a wave of fruit. Extremely long, fruit-driven finish.”

96 Pointz Decanter



“The 2000 growing season is known for quality over quantity. A mild, dry winter led to early bud burst before April and May brought unusual amounts of rain. This caused disruption to fruit set and a small harvest, but summer delivered some stability with good weather stretching right into September and through the harvest, ultimately with excellent fruit quality and fermentations under near ideal conditions. RM Strangely withdrawn on the nose, though perhaps just in a phase – it’s much better on the palate with fresh berry fruit, firm tannins, and lovely overall depth. Balanced, not especially big, but very nicely structured. SJ Lush and majestic palate. Indulgently concentrated but well balanced, with cooked black fruit, chocolate, and nutmeg spice. Incredibly long, with many years ahead. DW This is a full, ripe, sweet, juicy, and expressive example with blueberry appeal, leather/ spice notes, and freshness, as well as notable tannic tension.”



19/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“So young! Hardly any signs of bottle age here, with the primary red fruit still going full throttle. Brilliantly balanced. Super-rich and thick. Most likely immortal.”



ENJOY!
