We discovered our supplier still had one last three-pack of this stunning 2015 Port from Graham's. Rare and powerful.

The weather in 2015 was challenging for the Symington Family, owners of Graham's. Some vineyards achieved uneven ripeness, while some had conditions as good as in the greatest years. The Stone Terraces, Graham's tiny-production reserve wine made in only the top vintages, was one of the lucky ones, yet only 4800 bottles (400 12 pack cases) are available for the world, and I'm told only 20 3-packs are allocated for a state of 35 million people. Any bottles we get will be lucky for our customers. In a cask sample preview, I was stunned by this dense and very powerful wine. The fruit is glorious.

95 Pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:  The 2015 The Stone Terraces Vintage Port is a field blend, heavy on the Touriga Nacional, although not so listed, from two vineyards with stone terraces at Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos. It comes in with 106 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is gorgeous, with the potential for significant further development. Tight and focused, it is also refined, elegant and very sophisticated. It shows enough backbone to age well, although you might be able to approach this young Porto earlier than indicated. That said, it will certainly need some bottle age to gain complexity. Laced at the moment with primary fruit, raspberries mingling with plums, it is lifted, aromatic and delicious, lingering beautifully on the finish. Its purity of fruit makes it very appealing and sometimes stunning. Its finesse is exceptional, too. It could, perhaps, use a bit more concentration, but it is firing on all burners elsewhere. It is one of the 2015s that, I suspect, people will just love to drink even if it never quite improves to the point of sensational. Here's hoping it fleshes out a bit, comes together and merits an uptick in time. This has been released. There were just 4,800 bottles produced.
