Tasting Notes

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 be ready to drink in 8-10 years and 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.

Score: 96Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (107), October 1996

Score: 95James Suckling, Wine Spectator

Dark crimson with a ruby edge. Very ripe with an animal edge. Vigorous. Lively, characterful with quite enough sandy tannins as well as very ripe fruit. Not flashy but well balanced for future development. A slight coffee note. Bracing. Not the most intense or persistent but well made. Drink 2007-2017. Date tasted 13th Oct 04.
