Graham's Six Grapes Port 750ML    
Sku: 21368

The firm of W & J Graham & Co has its roots in a Glasgow-based textile concern. In 1820 the brothers William and John Graham, who were then managing the company office in Oporto, accepted 27 pipes of Port wine in settlement of a bad debt. This Port was shipped to the parent company in Glasgow which initially reprimanded the brothers for not sending cash. Fortunately however, after it was sold the Port turned out to be very popular and soon William and John were being urged by their parent company to acquire and ship more of this finest of fortified wines. Within the next few years Graham's reputation grew as a shipper of fine Port, first to Scotland and gradually all over the Port-drinking world. In 1882 Andrew James Symington, a young Scot whose family was well known to the Grahams, took up a position with Graham's in Oporto. The firm of W & J Graham was acquired by the Symington family, his descendants, in 1970. Today James Symington, grandson of Andrew James, and other members of the family draw on their century of experience in the Port trade to ensure that the quality and reputation of Graham's is maintained.

Six Grapes is one of Grahamís original Port blends and is thus one of the Companyís oldest marks.

Tasting notes
Six Grapes has a seductive, rich aroma of ripe plums, cherries and dark chocolate notes. On the palate it's complex, with an excellent structure and a long, lingering finish. Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port blends--it is a very full-bodied, luscious wine drawn from the same vineyards as Graham's Vintage Ports.

Rating
"The nose shows concentrated fruit flavors, followed by aromas of oak and tobacco. Flavors are sweet, merging into strawberry and rose jam preserves, as well as raisined grapes and cinnamon stick. Intensely sweet and luscious." Ultimate Beverage Challenge, 89 Points

Wine maker notes
It is a very full-bodied, luscious wine drawn from the same vineyards as Grahamís Vintage Ports. Blended from two or three yearsí harvests, the wine is an average of five to six years old when bottled. It follows the Grahamís Vintage style very closely, although it has softened more quickly by being matured in oak casks rather than in bottle. Its extremely rich fruity style makes it a truly superb, rare and appealing Port.

Top of the line. The grapes flavors are great, taste, and smooth. Excellent companion for a good cigar.
