3.5 stars "Color: deep; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: red berry; Sweetness: sweet; Body: firm; Finish: persistent; Overall: rich; This is a very good port. It can be drunk now, but if I were to buy another bottle I would hold for a while. The tannins give it a firmness, but it's well-balanced overall."

95 points "Score: 95 Release Price: $78 Current Auction Price: $47 Country: Portugal Region: Portugal Issue: Web Only - 2008 Plum and blackberry on the nose, with hints of dried violets. Wet earth. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, very chewy and rich. Long and caressing. Still very tight. Give it time. Very layered and structured. Much better than I remember. Impressive. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Best after 2010. 3,100 cases imported. –JS "

98 points "Graham is a shining example of an established Port house pushing the boat out to make even better wines through better viticulture and wine-making methodology. This is the greatest young Vintage Port from Graham I have ever tasted,and perhaps it will be better in the long term than the legendary 1948. It smells like freshly picked orchids, with loads of ripe, clean fruit, and then turns full-bodied, medium-sweet and very powerful in the mouth with big velvety tan-nins. It lasts for minutes on your palate. There's great balance and class to this young Vintage Port" Best 2014-2030
