The 1970 Grahamâs Vintage Port has been praised by critics over the entire course of its life, from Michael Broadbentâs top score of 5 Stars in 1972 on release, to Clive Coates calling it a complete wine and rating it 20 out of 20 points in 1991, to Richard Mayson observing earlier this year that it was still deep for its age. Drink with pleasure for the next thirty years or more! We had a bottle of this that we purchased at Graham's back in May 2 years ago and it was without a doubt the best bottle of vintage Port I have ever had. It's drinking beautifully right now and still shows remarkable youthfulness. Floral aromas on the nose, hints of mint, spice and soft notes of plum, cherry and blackberry. On the palate, flavors of lovely soft leather, plummy black fruit and rich toasty chocolate. Absolutely delicious! Jancis Robinson recently wrote (in the Financial Times) about a tasting of rare and hard to find fortified wines and included the 1970 Graham's as one of the "truly great fortified wines". She said that she would give it a minimum of 18 out of 20 points.
