Graham's Port Tawny 20 Year 2013

Member Review by steve16046:

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.

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

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

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.

The pale amber Twenty Year Old is lighter and gloriously smooth. It has a full, nutty bouquet, the classic Graham's richness and a soft lingering aftertaste.

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.

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.

Pale copper cast. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Caramel, rancio, peat. Quite aromatic with a complex character and very deep flavors on the palate. Lean through the finish with great intensity and length.

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