As a non-vintage wine, Six Grapes Port does show slight variation from year to year. This offering, with its new label and bottle design is the best NV to date. I have tasted Six Grapes upon its release every year for more than a decade and can attest that it’s moving in a direction that is more comprehensive as a signature wine. This new bottling shows ripe lush and opulent fruit without being overly sweet or cloying. Comprised, not of six grapes but actually eight in this case, the acidity balances out the fruit, the tannic structure balances out the sweetness. You will find notes of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, sugared almonds, roasted nuts, fresh raisins, milk chocolate, and light herbal notes. Ultimately, this is the best iteration thus far and Graham’s continues to exceed expectations. ORIGIN: Portugal. ALCOHOL: 20%
