The Grahams is one of my preferred ports to date as well.
Fonseca usually sells a good variety.
Many other countries are getting onboard the port thing though. Had an Australian not long back that was quite smooth. Forget the name.
I'm still delving into this world but so far so good.

We had another big blind tasting over Christmas. Standard rules min. $30 / bottle unless you know it is a stellar winner. The two top favs from many folk were:
Robert Mondavi 2001 CabSav Reserve Napa Valley
and
Concha y Toro Don Melchor CabSav 2001
The middle rated wine was The Crossing Pinot Noir 2004
The lower rated were:
Francis Coppola Black Label Claret (Cab Sav) 2003
Fontesuli (sp?) Chianti Classico 2002

Anyone who has not yet tried a Kim Crawford or The Crossings Sauvignon blancs are missing out. New Zealand makes some wicked wines.

On another note, the wine cellar is COMPLETE!!
Over 700 bottles of beautiful California redwood storage capacity!

Batts died in the digicam.
This will have to wait until at least tomorrow.

By the way, chess, how did your quest for a small TV come out?

I was clicking that blue stuff for like ten seconds.

I read good things about that Don Melchor in one of the wine magazines.

What were you guys having with those wines, chess?

The search for a "small" tv did not turn out as hoped.
We settled on a Phillips 27" LCD instead of a Toshiba b/c they were out of the Toshibas and we did not want to wait.
Then we went on a cruise.
Then the 30d return period expired.
The Phillips is ok, but it won't be sitting in the family room for much beyond a year. The picture quality with dvds is more acceptable than cable, but the motion blurring (ghosting) is not very good.

As for the cellar, one quick preview pic (don't mind the awful digicam quality...Nikon shots will follow soon):
