Estate Notes

Graham's Vintage Port 1997 was purchased in its original wooden case and comes from a classic Port vintage, typically producing wines of strong tannic backbone balanced by great depth of fruit from low yields.

Graham's port house owes its roots to a Glasgow-based textile business that opened an office in the nearby city of Oporto in the 20th Century. In 1820 office managers William and John Graham were given 27 pipes of Port wine in settlement of a bad debt. This Port was shipped to the parent company in Glasgow where it proved to be incredibly popular. Urged on by the parent company, William and John acquired and shipped more and more port to Scotland and grew a reputation as port shippers of distinction the world over.

Today, Graham's is managed by the Symington family, again of Scottish descent.

Reviews

"Blackberries, licorice, and melted asphalt stand out in this full-bodied, beautifully made vintage port's moderately intense bouquet...full-bodied, rich, concentrated, and impressive." Robert Parker

"Plum and blackberry on the nose, with hints of dried violets. Wet earth. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, very chewy and rich. Long and caressing. Very layered and structured." Wine Spectator
