I may be off-base, but I recall reading somewhere that wine yeasts aren't as good at processing complex sugars as ale yeasts, so the ec-1118 may have given up sooner than nottingham would.
You could try repitching with an ale yeast, but I'm not sure how it would do competing with all that living ec-1118 in there.
Your best bet is to give it a gentle stir and warm it up a few degrees to see if that rouses the yeast.
Graff does seem to have a wide range of ending gravity, people have posted theirs ending up from 1.000 to 1.012.
