Wine of the Day: Graham’s 20 Year Tawny Port

Established in 1820, Graham’s shines as one of the leading Port houses in the world. The producer, owned by the Symington family, was the first in Portugal to invest in their own vineyards for Port production, thus giving them control of the farming of the fruit from the viticulture aspect, marrying with their expertise in the production of world-class Port wines.

Their Ruby Ports are phenomenal, showcasing the terroir with and character of their family-owned vineyards, but for me, an aged Tawny is the key to my heart. Showcasing the characteristics seasoned oak gives to the wine, revealing harmony and balance in the glass, Graham’s 20 year Tawny Port ($60) layers dried orange peel, toasted cinnamon and nutmeg, dried fig and cherry, with a silky, honey, and hazelnut finish.
