Product Overview

The 2011 Graham's Vintage Port is from a vintage that has been heralded as likely to mature into one of the greatest vintages of either this or last century. The 2011 appears purple-black at the rim with aromas of blue violets, black China tea, and ripe red fruit. On the palate, it offers an initial taste of powerful and vigorous fruit, merging into flavors of bitter, black chocolate and fine acidity with balanced and mature, but not dry, tannins. The final flavor is clean and perfectly defined. This wine will age well, evolving into a finely balanced and elegant wine in the decades to come.

96 Points - Wine Spectator
"This offers a decadently fruity aroma, with peppery accents to the cherry, raspberry and dark currant flavors that are lithe and juicy. Grippy tannins grace the mocha- and chocolate-infused finish. Best from 2025 through 2055. 7,000 cases made." -KM, 2/28/14

96 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Deliciously sweet and perfumed, its powerful plum fruit flavors make this wine already accessible. In the background are the tannins—solid and concentrated—and the acidity, creating a nervous tension that confirms the wine's aging potential. Hold for many years." -RV, 11/1/13

96 Points - Vinous
"Bright, deep, saturated ruby. Liqueur-like ripeness to the deeply fruity aromas of kirsch, black raspberry and cassis. Thick, sweet and seamless, with a silky texture and great depth to its utterly primary dark berry and spice flavors. Wonderfully pure, intense young port with outstanding finishing sweetness, well-judged oakiness and big, ripe, noble tannins. Leaves behind exhilarating kirsch and violet notes on the extremely long finish, with a note of bitter chocolate emerging with extended aeration. This fleshy beauty boasts beautifully managed tannins and outstanding aging potential." -ST, May/2014

(95-97) Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Graham’s comes from the five quintas that have been the source for many years (Malvedos, Tua, Vila Velha, das Lages and Vale de Malhadas). It represents a selection of the 131 pipes from a total production of 1,454 and is a blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 31% Touriga Franca, 6% Sousao and 23% mixture of very old vines. It has a more “serious” bouquet compared to the Dow, with beguiling scents of blackberry, wild hedgerow, tobacco and cloves. Straight-laced, very well-defined and compelling, the palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and supremely well-judged acidity. It is utterly harmonious, with a pure core of ripe black cherries, damson, marmalade, clove and spices, and the finish lingers long in the mouth. The separation of “The Stone Terraces” vines certainly does not appear to have detracted from a great Graham’s. 5,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013." -NM, 6/27/13
