Graham's 20 Year Old Tawny Port
Our favorite tawny port is the only port that made Wine Spectator's list of the 100 best wines of 2013. Graham's 20 Year Old Tawny Port is just the right blend of fruity sweetness and barrel-aged richness. One of the things that sets Graham's apart from other port winemakers is their dedication to the barrels themselves. They employ their own coopers to tend to the oak barrels, ensuring that the port gets plenty of contact with good quality seasoned oak so that it's able to pick up lots of complex flavors. The grapes that go into the port are also of the highest quality, taken from the best harvests over a couple of growing seasons. The flavor has notes of apricot, peach, and pineapple, as well as plenty of chocolate and toffee. The finish is long, with a little spice to it and enough acidity to balance out the sweeter fruit flavors.
