Graham's 20 Year Old Tawny Port

SKU #240010 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark My favourite sub-category of tawny as this combines the freshness of youth with complexity of age: lovely reddish-tawny hue with a toffee and dried citrus character on the nose and palate, now smooth and silky with creamy texture (the concentration of age), the sweet fruit (that is the hallmark of Graham’s) offset by a streak of fresh acidity on the finish. A seamless melange of glorious flavours. (RM) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Dried cherry, iodine and peat with some watermelon. Hints of toffee and bark. Medium-to full-bodied, sweet and layered with a tannin texture and rich finish. Tangy and focused. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lovely, with date and persimmon notes that are melded seamlessly, picking up light bitter orange, ginger and green tea accents along the way. Echoes of sweet golden raisin and hazelnut linger on the finish, which is polished and long. A beauty. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid tawny colour. Sweet, nutty richness on the nose blends with pure, layered sweet fruit. Bursting with intense fruit, sweet spices and dried figs. Long and joyful with impeccable balance. Benchmark Tawny. 16.5/20 points (TP) Inner quote mark (12/2022)


Outer quote mark The 20-Year Old Tawny from Graham’s has a lifted grilled walnut, mandarin and clove-scented bouquet that blossoms in the glass. The palate is very harmonious and smooth in texture, offering orange rind, marmalade and chestnut. I like the bitter edge that develops towards the finish and the stem ginger that lingers on the aftertaste. My only quibble is just a slight lack of persistence, but otherwise this is a satisfying Tawny Port... (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

K&L Notes

Graham's was founded in 1820 in Portugal's Douro Valley and sits among the country's elite Port houses. For their aged Tawny Port bottlings, Graham's sources grapes from the pure schist soils of vineyards in the hot, dry mesoclimate at the heart of the Douro Valley. The 20-year is a distinct step up from Graham's 10-year, with a signature nuttiness and powerful thrust of flavors highlighted by orange peel and spice. Fine acidity drives the finish, which should really be graded on a different scale than what other wines would consider 'long.' One begins to think it may never end.

Like Graham's 10 Year Tawny, the 20 Year is a wine that is great to pair with a dessert course. Excellent with pastry or custards, this big boy does amazing things alongside something as down-home as pumpkin pie or even carrot cake with walnuts and cream cheese frosting. The Graham's 20 also has enough richness to pair with caramel-based desserts. An open bottle will keep in the fridge for weeks or even months, so no rush to finish it.
