Very Graham. Brambly rich and full of warm spice in a rounded sweet depth. Powerfully rich tannins on the finish, but the overall impression is of lush velvet richness over a core that really drives the length. Gorgeously seamless. Rating: 95-95 L&S (May 2013)

The nose is fragrant rockroses and violets but the palate is deep profound packed with brooding black fruits. The layers of fruit are underpinned by bitter chocolate lots of complexity with the richer black fruits backed by the freshness of red cherry and wild strawberries. Although the finish has depth richness there is elegance and style. 2035-70 Rating: 99 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)
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. Rating: 96 Kim Marcus, The Wine Spectator (Oct 2013)
Pure, floral with slightly appley blackcurrant fruit nose. Very pretty and floral with amazing presence, some liqueur-like richness and a spicy bite on the finish. Rating: 96-96 Jamie Goode, www.wineanorak.com (May 2013)
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 Naçional, 31% Touriga Franca, 6% Sousão 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. The separation of “The Stone Terraces” vines certainly does not appear to have detracted from a great Graham’s. 5,000 cases declared. Rating: 95-97 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (May 2013)
This is really peppery and floral. Dried flowers. Dried fruits. Full body, medium sweet with chewy tannins and a long finish with wonderful depth. Very tightly wound young Port. Compacted style. Tight and reserved. Rating: 94-95 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (May 2013)
They say they have worked very hard to avoid mouthpuckering tannins. Managed quite differently even though the IPT is as high as it's ever been. Meaty and concentrated. Really covers the palate – full width. Seems drier than most of the components on the finish but thoroughly exciting and complete. Spicy and noble. Minerally finish. 2025 -2060.
