"Grahams 1963 Vintage Port/ repo label, shoulder fill, embossed capsule."
" This is a monumental wine with a great balance of fruit and tannin. Medium ruby with a garnet edge, enticing nose of bitter chocolate and plums, full-bodied, with chocolate and raspberry flavors, medium tannins and a very long finish. (JS, Web Only-1989) 97 points, Wine Spectator. An iconic vintage which symbolised the renaissance of vintage port following the aftermath of the Second World War. Just over 500 bottles are now left in the Graham?s lodge apparently. Pale ruby. Haunting and again, so direct and transparent. Gorgeous, ethereal, light, heady and lifted. Jewel of a wine. Long and powerful, although over time in the glass it became a little spirity ? as well it might at 55 years old. 19/20 points Jancis Robinson. What a stunning 1963 vintage port this is! The bouquet draws you in, does not drag you in with its alcohol and reveals a fresh, well defined nose with a nutty edge, hints of cigar box and allspice. The palate is beautifully balanced, understated on the entry but building all the time, flashes of eucalyptus leading towards a more extrovert, clove tinged finish that hangs around the palate like an obsessed ex-girlfriend. Gorgeous Grahams! Drink now-2030. 96 points, The Wine Advocate. This bottle has a facimilie label, was imported by Lefcourt Cellars Inc, San Francisco, CA. Please ask for additional photos."
