'The 1994 Vintage Port is going to be re-released. It has about 100 grams per liter of residual sugar. With a big eucalyptus note up front, this is elegant in the mid-palate with controlled tannins. Sweet and easy in some ways, this is readily approachable now, perhaps not at peak, but more expressive than the relatively brooding Dow's, also reviewed. The hint of caramel and raisins mixed with sugar makes this irresistible. It is sexy and intriguing. Drink to 2045.' – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 95/100

'The 1994 Graham’s Vintage Port, which incidentally carries quite noticeable sediment, as there is no fining or filtration, is beginning to show a little bricking on the rim. The bouquet is very harmonious and welcoming, featuring aromas of mulberry, roasted chestnut, pressed rose petals, autumn leaves and a hint of liquorice. The nose is not powerful; rather, it displays a brooding intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and lightly spiced with clove, pain d’épices and again, a scintilla of liquorice. Though it obviously has another 20 or 30 years in the tank, this mellow Graham’s is drinking beautifully now. Tasted at the Symington Tawny Port tasting at the Tower of London. Drink to 2050.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 95/100

'A big, tough, young vintage Port that's closed and difficult to taste. Emits lovely aromas of chocolate, berry and plum, and is full-bodied with lots of sweet, fruit flavors and masses of velvety tannins. Long, sweet finish.' – James Suckling, Wine Spectator, 95/100

''A classic vintage port of the twentieth century and certainly one of the very finest of the post-World War II era', say the Symingtons. The weather was very similar to that in 2016 and 1963. Blackish ruby. Evolving rim. Lightly cheesy nose with prune notes too. Very sweet start. Dry finish. Quite burly on the palate and ‘smudgy’ on the nose. This 1994 shows up the purity of the 2016.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

Producer information Graham’s is a well-regarded Port house in the Douro Valley in Portugal. Brothers, William and John Graham, began in the textile industry, but after receiving a payment in barrels of Port in 1820, they decided to establish a Port house and produce the best Ports in Douro. Andrew James Symington, a Scottish businessman, began working with Graham’s in 1882 and later left to start his own Port production. However, almost 100 years later, in 1970, the Symington family became the owners, which is today one of the few Port houses independently owned by a single family.
