This Port has a deep red/black colour in the glass. The nose is full of blackberry, mint and spice notes, and is very intense. The full, juicy, ripe palate follows, with some sweetness and gently supporting tannins that frame the palate. It’s 20% in alcohol but such is the full fruit that this has very good balance indeed. It’s ready to drink, no need to decant, but will keep for a further 4 or 5 years with ease.
W & J Graham, known most often as Graham’s is a port producer that was founded in 1820. It now belongs to the Symington family, who have both British and Portuguese roots (there are now 10 members of the Symington working in the family business!). They are owners of several great port houses (i.e. the companies who vinify and age the port) and also individual vineyards where their grapes are grown, known as Quintas), across the Douro Valley. Grapes for this wine were taken from four of their Quintas. see more at www.grahams-port.com
