Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For W. & J. Graham's 30 Year Old Tawny Port

W. & J. Graham's 30 Year Old Tawny Port is an extraordinary expression of time and craftsmanship, showcasing a deep amber hue with coppery reflections that hint at its prolonged maturation. The nose is a tapestry of rich and complex aromas, featuring an opulent array of dried fruits such as figs, dates, and apricots. Layers of toasted almonds, hazelnuts, and a subtle infusion of toffee and butterscotch contribute to the wine's exquisite bouquet. Undertones of spice and oak add a further dimension, creating an alluring and sophisticated olfactory experience.

On the palate, this Tawny Port unveils a velvety texture that caresses the senses. Flavors of caramel, toffee, and roasted nuts dominate, forming a decadent symphony of taste. The wine's maturity is evident in the seamless integration of these elements, creating a palate that evolves with each sip.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 96:
Dried cherries, plums and candied fruit with some figs on the nose. Light toffee, too. Medium-to full-bodied, very sweet and layered with dried fruit, smoked wood, caramel and hints of stems. Some dried earth and salted nuts. Very complex. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 95:
Remarkably, this is able to show age and long cask aging, but the flavor is still here: figs and honey, balanced out with burnt caramel aged acidity and a rich (but not sweet) finish. Excellent, top quality aged tawny.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 95:
Broad in feel and dark in profile, with walnut and hazelnut notes leading the way, followed by brown bread, dried fig, bitter orange, singed almond and juniper notes. A lovely flash of green tea adds sparkle and detail on the finish, but this stays reliant on its bass line throughout. Drink now. From Portugal.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 94:
The NV 30 Years Tawny Port was bottled in 2013 with a bar-top cork and 125 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is smoother and more harmonious than the Dow this issue, a contrast in house styles. If the Dow's this issue often seemed stern, tight and brooding, this is sexy, sunny and lively, with a burst of sugar on the finish. It starts a little understated and certainly elegant, but it gathers strength and length on the finish. Supple on the first pour, it then adds a touch of brandy, a hit of sugar and a lot of dark chocolate on the finish—just to remind you that this is indeed an old, complex Tawny. The next day, it is beautiful, focused, well balanced and precise. The lifted fruit seems to last indefinitely on the palate. After a week or so, it was darker and more intense. As always, these hold indefinitely in the bottle, barring cork failures, but they are not really meant to be held.
