Graham 2007 Vintage Port: Tasting Notes

This page provides an overview of my notes on the Graham 2007 Vintage Port. Apologies if the notes are brief (or non-existent); they are mainly recorded for my benefit with public distribution being a secondary priority!

I always enjoy hearing from other Port-drinkers. If you find these notes helpful; or find yourself violently disagreeing with me about them, please do not hesitate to contact me at: port­@­J­a­c­o­b­-­H­e­a­d­.­c­o­m­.

The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: More floral than the Warre and Dow 2007s. Perhaps, though a bit simpler and understandable on the nose than the Warre (which had massive complexity of fruit). In the mouth, immediate sugar, followed by a lovely floral violet sensation. Perhaps a touch of strawberry too. Notably tannic (unlike the Warre). My favourite of the three 2007s.

* A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: N—No; P—Possibly; or C—Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.
