2003

Grahams Vintage Port

Reviews



96 Pointz Wine & Spirits


“An expansive chord of mineral and black fruit flavor, this vintage of Graham's is all-enveloping in its sheer power. The tannins and the fruit strike a balance with dense, floral, purple-black flavors over crushed stone. That schisty grip of the tannin ends up feeling supple and curvaceous, defining the boundaries of the fruit rather than restricting it. The best vintage of Graham's in recent memory, this 2003 should be drinking well from 2025 to 2046, and should live well beyond that.”

Best of 2005


“This is a great Port, from a great brand. It is packed with solid, structured, rich, and intense black fruit flavors. Its tannins show considerable aging potential. It is a big, ripe wine, balanced by a long, lingering dark aftertaste.”



95 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“Violets, roses, spices, and candied dark fruits emanate from the glass of the murky black/purple colored 2003 Graham Vintage Port. After four days of air, this wine’s aromatics sweetened further, displaying jammy blackberry and blueberry scents. Bold, full-bodied, and expansive, the Graham benefited the most from extensive contact with air of all the 2003s tasted for this report. This opulently jammy wine assaults the palate with powerful yet soft layers of oily, candied red fruits as well as notes of tar and hints of mocha. A highly concentrated effort, it is creamy textured, suave, and reveals an admirably long finish filled with additional layers of dark fruits intermingled with spices.”



95 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar


“Deep, saturated ruby. Initially reticent aromas of dark chocolate and nuts; showed a high-pitched eucalyptus quality as it opened in the glass. Then almost shockingly huge and rich in fruit, with wonderfully lush, complex flavors of cassis, violet, minerals, spices, flowers, and exotic chocolate. The tannins are seductively sweet, yet the finish boasts terrific focus, not to mention outstanding persistence. In terms of sheer palate-saturating flavor and texture, this runs a close second to Fonseca among these 2003s. For long aging.”



94 Pointz Wine Spectator


“Loads of tar and blackberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with medium sweetness, big, velvety tannins and a long finish. A big, juicy wine.”

Master of Wine


“Very dark blackish crimson. Some sweet liquorice and then massively sweet on the palate. Heat is a little obvious on the palate at the moment. A bit sinewy and awkward for now. Black pepper!”



ENJOY!
