First vintage made by the Syms – a vintage that effectively paid for the purchase of Graham's. A wine with a particularly interesting history. The Portuguese revolution broke out just after this was shipped. As an insurance policy the Syms bought back some 1970s and stored them in the north at Whittalls. They sell it at a premium today. The decision to buy Graham's was crucial for the Symingtons - they had great stocks. This was the last year that vintage port could be bottled in the UK. Dark garnet. Very bright. High-toned and fresh on the nose and beautifully dry and liquorice and yet full of glorious floral fruit. Dry but not drying finish. Real beauty now. Long and glorious.

This is an extremely full-bodied, powerful wine, but it still retains a classy balance. Deep ruby, with chocolate and berry aromas, full-bodied, with anise and dried cherry flavors, full, hard tannins and a long finish. Good now but a few more yearsof bottle age would improve it. - James Suckling

Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. The 1970 is a monumental vintage port and one of the greats of the vintage. It begs to be drunk now, although it will last for at least another two decades. - Robert Parker
