    (Graham's Vintage Port) At a little over thirty years of age, and after exactly that number of years in bottle, this wine has a lovely colour, appearing quite mature in the glass, losing some depth of hue, although it is certainly not pale. The nose is divine, taking some time to open up naturally, but then it begins to reveal its perfumed beauty, with a blend of violet petals and raspberries on toast. These early and bright fruit characteristics are followed by notes of darker fruits, cloves, touches of white chocolate and a little spirit still, this latter element fading as I enjoy this wine over the course of three days, without any sign of significant deterioration. It has a lovely somewhat creamy texture on entry, then showing some structure through the middle, tannic, grippy and a touch spirity still, but with a gentle, caressing substance alongside. Savoury, sweet but aromatic, firm, but what is most impressive is its light footed nature, bright and yet substantial, elegant even. This is still certainly packed full of potential though, and although delightful to drink now this will undoubtedly continue to age gracefully in the cellar for a couple of decades yet, perhaps longer.
