" Great young vintage of Graham, even better than 1997 and 1994 and will rival or even better the legendary 1948 (95 points when I last tasted it). Certainly one of the wines of the vintage, and already close to 100 points. Concentrated, intense crushed-berry aromas, with hints of blackberries and cherries. Full-bodied, round and sweet, with velvety tannins and a long, sweet fruit finish. Goes on and on. The Symington family, who own Graham, recently installed robotic, stainless steel lagares, the open-topped fermentation tanks historically used to make Port. The 2000 vintage was the first time they used them. (June-02). Slight citrus (orange peel) aromas with loads of ripe plums. Also quite floral on the nose. Extremely sweet and lush on the palate (Typical Graham's) with a fine grip at the back palate. Extremely appealing and showing a ripe, forward character. Lovely and will go for many years."
