2007 W. & J. Graham’s Vintage Port Review And Tasting Notes
Good, good, indeed di(w)vine!
This Port Vintage 2007 by W. & J. Graham’s is simply splendid for the strength, character, and finesse with which it expresses itself. It is a wine with a magnificent structure, full of floral and fruity nuances that mix with sensational echoes of chocolate, coffee, and cardamom. Still, everything is declined with an incredible naturalness.
It is always in motion in the mouth and seduces you with still vigorous tannins. The heat slaps your palate with elegance: you can feel unique ripe flavors seasoned with cinnamon and then arrive at a zesty finish, which slips into the sweetness of an irresistible fruit in syrup.
It’s a multifaceted and Pindaric wine, but solid, built to last over time, and in fact, tannins and freshness are there, ready to play down all this incredible extract.
Complex nose, enveloping, mature and mottled with decadent oxidized notes lost among the coils of fruit in syrup, blueberries in alcohol, cocoa, coffee, and fresher, balsamic mentholated tones.
Spices are well-integrated but without exaggerating: the wine is free to express itself, and the straightforward floral suggestions are the most evident manifestation.
Persistence, cleanliness, and sumptuousness: a masterpiece.
In the mouth, it is consistent and equally broad and lascivious, full, tannic, but immediately ready to tame the palate with a honeyed sweetness.
Despite being so full, warm, and sharp, the beauty is that it already achieves a good balance.
We are still far from full aromatic development, but tasted now, despite being very complex and stratified, it does not present any hitches and has a record-breaking drinkability.
The sip has a generous thickness, and the memory will remain on the tongue for at least 5 minutes.
