Graham’s Fine Ruby Porto Non-Vintage Douro, Portugal 

My Rating 90 Points.   

Price $18.
Dark ruby in color with a short purplish rim.

Sweet nose of cooked cherries, black currants, sweet strawberries, black plums, dried figs, alcohol, leather, spices, cloves, wood, graphite, coke and peppercorn.

Full bodied, rich and bold, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Sweet on the palate with sweet cherries, blackberries, figs, raisins, wood, vanilla, milk chocolates, tobacco, spices, mocha and peppercorn

Long finish with soft tannins and tart cranberries.

This port is well balanced with ample acidity to balance the sugar. A very smooth and velvety mouthfeel, with nice complexity.

Very enjoyable by itself or with sweet desserts. A little too sweet for me, though. I paired it with Caramel Flan.

19% alcohol by volume.
