1994 Graham's Vintage Port (375ml)

SKU #240038 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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.  (10/1996)

95 points Wine Spectator

 A big, tough, young vintage Port that's closed and difficult to taste. Emits lovely aromas of chocolate, berry and plum, and is full-bodied with lots of sweet, fruit flavors and masses of velvety tannins. Long, sweet finish.  (4/1997)

Jancis Robinson

 Deep garnet. Amazing nose: complex and rich, cigar box and fig, violets and sweet baking spice, muscovado sugar, ripe baked plums. Huge depth and richness, grippy but fully rounded tannins. Depth and yet no heaviness. Slight nuttiness. After all that intensity, still has freshness on the finish. Baked potato skins. Lovely sweetness. (JH)  (11/2010)

K&L Notes

93 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The Grahams ’94 is still very tight and youthful on the nose, quite strict and conservative with smoky black fruit with hints of Chinese 5-spice, singed leather and bay leaf. Very well defined. The palate is full-bodied, creamy in texture on the entry, very spicy with a thwack of lemongrass and ginger on the black palate, superb length, a Grahams straining at the leash. This has impressive length: muscular and compelling. Excellent. Drink now-2035. Tasted April 2010." (eRobertParker.com, 11/2010)

Other Red Wines



- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.


- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
