6 Grapes

This wine is aptly named. W & J Graham's "six grapes" reserve porto piles layers upon layers of rich, dark sweet grapieness into every sip. This might not be a traveled to the Indian subcontinent in the belly of a ship, linger in your mouth for an hour after each sip kind of port, but it represents the essential character of this fortified wine: fill your mouth with sweet, stick around with a mild alcohol finish of black pepper and mace for a minute or two, and remind you why any appreciation of wine must include port.
