Graham's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2015

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalGraham’s has been cultivating grapes for 200 years, primarily sourced from five iconic quintas in the Douro Valley. 2015 is a commemorative edition, bottled in 2020, marking Graham’s bicentenary (1820-2020), and sourced from four of Graham’s vineyards located in the mountainous Douro Valley. A wet winter and a dry growing season produced fully ripe grapes in 2015, laying the foundation for a fine LBV led by touriga franca. It is all matured in large oak barrels for 60 months. Traditionally on the sweet side of the LBVs, look for enticing floral, licorice with dried figs, and plum jam. The structure is smooth and long, with a hint of black tea in the finish. Ready to drink all winter. Serve with hard cheeses or roasted almonds.Tasted: 02 December 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.99 BCLS AB 24.99 select private retailers SK 29.99 SaskLiquor MB 23.99 Manitoba Liquor Mart ON 18.00 LCBO NFL 25.99 NLLC Producer: Symington Family Estates - W. & J.
