W. & J. Graham's Vintage Port Blend 1994

$88.99

In a port tasting, tasting Graham's is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will...keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham's. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2035. Robert Parker

Heck of a hosting by @Weston Eidson last night for the City Club wine group. All wines were tasted blind. Wonderful finish to the evening. It didn’t have as much sweetness to it as I normally think Graham’s does. Mixed berry compote, graham cracker, nutty, and cherry liqueur infused fig. My guess here was late 80s/early 90s port.

Saline, fino, wild herbs, purple flowers and mushroom on the nose. Highly concentrated with a garnet rim. Moderate staining, high viscosity. Creme de cassis, black currants, with all forms of spearmint. Moderate plus acidity and moderate minus soft and well integrated tannins.

Stayed in the Iberian Peninsula but veered off into Portugal to end the night. Paired gorgeously with the mousse.

So delicious. This port was introduced to me by my Uncle Joe. We toasted to my move to London and now crack open a new bottle every time there is something to celebrate. My absolute favorite port.
