W. & J. Graham's Vintage Port Blend 2011

$94.99

The 2011 vintage was phenomenal for the Port houses of Portugal and the Graham's is one of the highest-rated of the vintage. Limited.97 Points Robert Parker:  "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....Graham's...the most consistent producer of great Port in the post World War II era... their Vintage Ports are truly sublime and sumptuous."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."

What's not to like? Amazing richness, powerful tannins, juicy acidity and complete purity. Great balance and very hard to resist already, but will be very longlived. Also, perhaps their most elegant vintage to date.

It ain't even out yet. Spanish root, sarsaparilla complexity, full Graham sweetness, super focussed finish- great acid! Will I live to taste it as a mature wine?
