Grahams Six Grapes is made from six Port-grape varieties, hence the name: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Amarela and Tintao Cão. Six Grapes is bottled ready to drink after about five years of cask aging. It has a t-cap closure, which means that you don't need a corkscrew to open it and that it should stay fresh for up to two months if stored in a cool, dark place or the refrigerator. Serve it in a glass with at least a six ounce capacity so that you may appreciate the wine's aromas.
The color is a very dark purple. Aromas are like dark chocolate covered cherries with plum and bramble berry. In the mouth, flavors are much the same with some toast and spice and very smooth. The finish was short to medium with flavors of plum and blackberry.
Six Grapes pairs particularly well with dark chocolate, or sharp hard cheese (cheddar, especially), but is also fantastic on its own as a luscious dessert in a glass.
