Graham's is a prominent and independent Port house in the Douro Valley of northern Portugal. The company begun as a textile company in the early 1800s by brothers William and John Graham in Glasgow, who received a barrel of Port as payment for a debt. The business grew from there, and today, Graham's is owned by the Symington family who own several other port houses. The Graham's cellar is located across the river from Porto in Vila Nova de Gaia, and is home to the house's extensive collection of aging ports.
Originating in the 19th century, Graham’s winemakers would mark each barrel of port using grape symbols to rate the wine from one to six. The symbol of six grapes denoted complexity, structure, and balance. Aged for two years in seasoned casks before being bottled, Six Grapes is a youthful, bright, and complex reserve port.
Dark red color, with a seductive rich perfume of ripe plums and cherries. On the palate, complex, with a good structure and a long lingering finish.
