Graham Six Grapes Port 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal. The brothers, who already came from a successful entrepreneurial family, dedicated themselves to producing a line of fine vintage Ports. In 1890, they became one of the first Port quintas (estates) to source fruit from the upper Douro Valley and established the property Quinta dos Malvedos. The quality of the grapes from this vineyard is a major contribution to the finesse of their Ports. In that same year, the brothers opened the Graham’s Lodge in Vila Nova di Gaia, to store and showcase the wines. Vintages of Graham’s Port became famous for their structure and elegance, particularly 1909, 1912, 1924, 1927 and especially 1948, a wine Jancis Robinson said was among the finest she’d ever tasted. In 1970, Graham’s was sold to the Symington family, who themselves had a legacy of quality Port production dating back centuries. They have upheld the traditions begun by the Graham’s and continue to produce outstanding Ports as sole proprietors of the operation. Aside from vintage, Graham’s also produces Ports in every style from Tawny to Ruby, Late Bottle Vintage (LBV), Crusted and White, as well as their value release the Six Grapes.  Read less

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

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

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.

This has everything going for it. I call this my week night port because of the low price. Aroma of overly ripe dark fruit, cherries, and a hint of chocolate. On the palate I get a spiceyness, ripe fruit, some chocolate and an earthiness background. A bit too sweet which gives it a cloying finish. Sip it slowly for maximum enjoyment.

Six Grapes has a seductive, rich aroma of ripe plums, cherries and dark chocolate notes. On the palate it's complex, with an excellent structure and a long, lingering finish. Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port blends--it is a very full-bodied, luscious wine drawn from the same vineyards as Graham's Vintage Ports.

Fine Tawny Port is lighter in color and texture than Ruby and is also slightly drier.Graham's Fine Tawny combines these qualities with the rich fruity style which is the hallmark of all Graham's Ports. The skillful inclusion in the blend of some older wines adds a lingering, nutty taste.Reddish tawny colour, with ripe fruit aromas nicely balanced by hints dried fuits, and on the palate slightly dry, elegant and smooth.
