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

Pours a nice reddish orange color, reminding me of a little rust color. Lots of nutty flavors on the front end. Some sweet butterscotch in the middle. Finishes with a nice toasted caramel flavor. Nice length to this wine.

I was especially struck by this port's long, flavorful finish. A pleasantly rich dessert wine.

Light ruby color; rich rancio and berry nose; silky and toasty with bright acidity and lovely structure; elegant, complex and long.

A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes. The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity. Drink now.

Ruby-copper hue with brown highlights. Rich, generous aromas and a concentrated attack with golden raisin flavors and a rich mouthfeel. The finish shows complexity and sweet persistence with rancio and brown spice flavors. This is a fatter style, with amontillado-like complexity.

Buttery, caramel flan flavors enrich this mature, toasty tawny. It finishes warm, with a silky custard softness rather than grip. Serve with a walnut or almond tart.

Copper-red hue. Spicy, well-aged aromas have a complex array of components such as coffee, leather, and sweet fruits. Follows through well on the silky palate with nutty, toffee-like flavors lingering on the finish. A lovely example of the tawny genre.

Lovely full wine — simple edge but some lively fruit too. Complex palate refreshed by young fruit. Art of blackberry. Drink now.

This 20-year-old shows some surprisingly youthful notes of red fruits along with layers of caramel, honey, maple syrup and walnuts. Nicely balanced.

Tasting Notes:

Graham’s 20 Years Old represents superlative quality. Its principal attributes are great complexity and harmony. With an amber, golden tawny colour, denoting considerable age, Graham’s 20 Years Old has an excellent bouquet, with a characteristic ‘nutty’ character (almonds) and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing. Rich, sweet and smooth on the palate, it is perfectly balanced, with a long and lingering finish. This is an excellent alternative to Vintage Port at less formal occasions and will keep for some weeks after opening.

Wine Spectator: Pretty honey, caramel and butterscotch, with a hint of prunes. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a fresh finish. Try it with chocolate.
