Winemaking:
Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage, like Vintage Port, is a wine of a single year however it is not a “declared” Vintage Port. Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged in casks and then bottled at between four and six years of age. This wood-ageing encourages the wine’s development and thus, at the time of bottling it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking, without the need for decanting. Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage illustrates Graham’s house style very effectively: great rich fruit concentration with spicy complexity and depth, held together by superb structure and balance. Graham’s has always been renowned for producing outstanding Ports and its Late Bottled Vintage Port is no exception, standing as a leader in its category.

16 points - Grahams LBV Port 2009

Good concentration of color, aroma and very dense black fruit, chocolate and some vegetable. Very very textured mouth volume, Chews, resulting much attractive, full and with class. Surprising.

88 points - Grahams LBV Port 2009

The 2009 Late Bottled Vintage Port was bottled in 2014 after five years in wood. It comes in at 112 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is far more settled now than when I first saw it, the sugar and flavor taking it over. It lacks the power of the Dow (the other Symington LBV here this issue), but it is more graceful and sexier. I had a minor preference for the Dow, but this is showing well now, silky in texture and ending with a burst of fruit and flavor. Note that this has a bar top cork and was filtered. It's intended to be drunk young, not aged, but it can hold a reasonable time without problem--perhaps even longer than indicated.

This is a smooth and rich wine, with generous fruit alongside spice and ripe, black plum fruit accents. Ready to drink, it shows surprising balance between a perfumed character and an unctuous palate.
