Graham Six Grapes Port 2013
Six Grapes is one of Graham’s original Port marques. It is a big-hearted wine, sourced from the same vineyards (essentially Quinta dos Malvedos and Quinta das Lages) that contribute to Graham’s famed Vintage Ports in ‘declared’ years. As such, it closely resembles Graham’s Vintage Port style: full-bodied, with rich opulent black fruit on the palate and fragrant brambly aromas. We think of it as the ‘everyday Port for the Vintage Port drinker.’ Six Grapes is bottled relatively young (between 3 and 4 years) in order to retain the freshness and vigour comparable to a young Vintage Port.
Editorial Reviews for Graham Six Grapes Port
Floral and almost herbal on the nose with layers of tea like aromas adding really intriguing complexity to the base of cocoa-dusted, dried cherry fruit. Soft and easy going in the mouth, this doesn’t come off as particularly sweet but might benefit from a little more acidity adding some liveliness to the palate. The flavor profile is lovely and full of black cherry. Faint medicinal tones, hints of pollen, raspberry, black currant and caramel are all melded together into one subtle and smooth package. The finish is kind of structured with dusty tannins and more than enough acidity to refresh the palate. 88pts
Deep ruby purple in color as a young Ruby Port is. Bright fruit, a bit of alcohol burn, but delightful. Roasted chocolate, some espresso, and herbaceous, great everyday Ruby Port..
Ruby style port. Good but left me wanting more as the flavors were dull and not fully defined. After a week it's flavorless. My first and last bottle.
Very dark . Smell of alchohol and tannin. Medium legs. Has the wine smell. Sweet start with fruity flavor, some tannin right in the middle. Somewhat complex. Very flavorful. Good common sipper
Really smooth wine. I recommend this wine if you like a sweet yet strong wine
Dark ruby color. Aromas of ripe plums and black cherries. On the palate, complex, with a good structure and a long lingering finish.
Graham’s Six Grapes pairs wonderfully with rich, dark chocolate desserts, as well as strong cheeses like a creamy blue.
