Winemaker's Notes:

#88 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

On the nose, there are complex and distinctive fresh fruit and floral aromas with discreet spice and pepper wood notes. On the palate, good acidity, with rich spicy, red fruit flavors have a balanced character, with soft tannins that help an elegant and long finish.

My Notes:

About Churchill:

The producers, Churchill-Graham LTDA., is the first independent port wine house to be established in more than fifty years. It was the creation of John Graham and his wife Caroline Churchill in 1981. John Graham is a scion of the Graham port family, which has given its name to excellent ports for almost two centuries.

Churchill's is the only port wine producer who begins with wines produced only from grapes in Grade A vineyards, as designated by the Port Wine Institute. He then blends them into a range of ports, which, being true to the traditions of port wines, are very distinctive.
