Wine Spectator 93 points - Lovely, with date and persimmon notes that are melded seamlessly, picking up light bitter orange, ginger and green tea accents along the way. Echoes of sweet golden raisin and hazelnut linger on the finish, which is polished and long. A beauty. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. -JM.June/2018
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Crushed walnuts, marzipan, orange zest and prunes ae just th start of the aromas to be teased from this unctuous and lush port. Surprisingly light and citrusy, a bit like reduced orange juice spiked with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Delightfully dry and r.May/2012
Decanter 96 points - Tawny Port is always exciting, but if you can afford to splash out, go for a 20 Year Old. All the major houses make wonderful aged tawnies and this is always one of the best. Ethereal and mellow on the palate, it boasts flavours of toffee and caramel, burnt orange and raisins, dried plums, hazelnuts and a savoury hint of mushroom on the finish. Wonderful stuff!.January/2019
During their long maturing period in oak casks, Old Tawnies undergo subtle colour changes. The deep red hue which characterises Port's purple infancy gradually gives way to a paler red. It then becomes amber - paler still - and eventually takes on a delicate brown, orange tinted colour.
The pale amber Twenty Year Old is lighter and gloriously smooth. It has a full, nutty bouquet, the classic Graham's richness and a soft lingering aftertaste.
