The 2016 Grahams Vintage Port will now follow in the footsteps of the legendary W & J Grahams Vintages produced over the last two hundred years. Like most parts of the world, the Douro has not been isolated from the effects of climate change, and unusual weather conditions over recent years have often departed from those typically associated with classic vintage years. Fortunately, in 2016 the stars aligned and the year brought superbly structured and balanced wines, allowing us to announce a full vintage declaration.
99 points! Extremely complex aromas that show the classic Graham character of black-fruit marmalade and burnt oranges. Follows through to a full body with great grip at the finish. Lightly sweet. Chewy and powerful. Such a focus at the end. jamessuckling.com, May 2018
