Graham's 1994 Single Harvest Tawny
1940
1963
1972
1994

1994 was an outstanding year in the Douro, acclaimed for producing one of the classic Vintage Ports of the twentieth century. Besides the exceptional lots chosen for bottling as Vintage Port, Peter Symington made a selection of other outstanding wines sourced from Quinta dos Malvedos and Quinta das Lages, which he earmarked for long term ageing in seasoned oak casks for future release as old tawny Ports.

 This is very layered and beautiful with fantastic depth and caressing tannins that remind me of a 40-year-old vintage Port more than a vintage tawny. Full-bodied, very sweet and gloriously rich at the end. Just a hint of tannin, too. Love the finish.

Showing lots of power and plenty of depth, this is a radically different style than the Otima (Warre's) this issue. Intense, deep and packed with fruit, it lingers forever on the finish in the way a great tawny should—and this is a great tawny, flavorful, structured and deep. Not even 30 years old yet, it seems to be an overachiever for its relatively young age.

Bottled in 2018 after nearly 25 years in wood, this wine is sumptuous with its rich toffee and spice flavors. They contrast with the hints of fresh acidity from the wood aging, giving a dry core to the mature sweet fruits. The wine is completely ready to drink.

Toasted sesame, caramel, hazelnut and cinnamon notes lead the way, backed by a caressing feel on the finish, as sandalwood, golden raisin and bergamot accents chime in. Shows refinement throughout. Drink now. 200 cases made, 75 cases imported.  –JM

Earthy, spicy notes of cinnamon, clove and dried fruit, followed by a savoury, soft and rich palate showing burnt citrus peel depth.

Richly textured in a lovely contrast between supple and frisky, this wine focuses on generous almond flavors over a light touch of strawberries and cream. Its caramel and toffee notes clean up in the end; a bold Tawny to serve with a savory almond tart.
