Deep red, 80% opaque. Jelly bean nose, very attractive and quite pronounced - even a bit of heat bringing a big promise. Youthful impact, big and sweetly fruity with surprisingly noticeable tannins. Lots of palate development with dark chocolate and black cherry. Hot aftertaste, almost numbing, followed by a modest black chocolate finish. Tasty, but a decade or two from being worth opening. Quite a heavyweight. 92/100. 10 hour decant.

Impressive dark and youthful looking. Dark fruit, rose petal and typical Graham spirity character on the nose. To taste round and full. Packed with fruit, lively and complex. A powerhouse that will improve for many years to come. Great effort from Graham, only reason it didn't make my top 3 is that Graham's sweet / spirity style is usually a bit too much for my taste.

G70, decanted 10am. Dark red, 70% opaque. Light nose. Taste red-fruited, very big and lovely. Heat. Slightly hollow, but nonetheless lovely.
