Graham Six Grapes Port Portugal 2007

Member Review by Louis Charton:

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 Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal.

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

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.
