1992 Port Duo

2x75cl of Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port 1992 (both bottles come in a double dark mocha gift box with silk liner as illustrated)

*** 90 Points (outstanding) Robert Parker***

Reviews:

A supple, charming, dark ruby/purple-colored wine, Quinta do Vesuvio's 1992 Vintage Port offers excellent concentration, a velvety texture, not much weight or tannin, a precocious, penetrating fragrance, sweet fruit, medium to full body, and a gentle finish. It will drink well young and last for 20 years." Robert PArker, Wine Advocate


This 1992 Quinta do Vesuvio has a clear medium dark red colour. The fruit is there with ripe banana, mocha, raisins and chocolate dominating the nose. It is sweet on the palate, with high enough acidity to keep it fresh and vibrant.

Fonseca Port, 1992

Vintage Port (MAGNUM)

Please note this is a rare MAGNUM 1.5L format.

Scoring 97 Parker Points a magnificent Port

Reviews "Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years.

Niepoort Port, 1992

Quinta do Passadouro Vintage Port (damaged and bin soiled labels)
Special Offer | Was £69.95 | Now £49.95

*** 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate ***

Produced and bottled by Niepoort, this opaque purple-colored port is more backward and tannic than Niepoort's vintage wines. Impressively endowed, with a reticent, but promising nose of chocolate, blackberry fruit, truffles, and licorice, this full-bodied, massive, moderately sweet port should be cellared until 2000. It will age well for 20-30 years. Impressive! (RP) (2/1995)

Quevedo Port, 1992

Sale

Colheita Port
SPECIAL OFFER | NOW £39.95 | WAS £48.95

*** 90 Points Roy Hersh - For the Love of Port ***


The 1992 Quevedo Colheita is an outstanding quality and value effort from this family-run estate. Oscar and Claudia Quevedo have produced a light brown port with hints of amber. On the palate there are nuts and a lovely light molasses note with coffe and spices The finish is long and lingering as befits a quality port such as this. Outstanding!

Reviews:
"This was a cask sample which Oscar Quevedo had sent to me by way of Vinologia and how often do you get to try 16 year old bottled cask samples of any wine? I can't begin to describe the color as we sat beneath the bridge on the Porto side, sipping and talking during the wee hours our first night in country (Andy/ Stewart/Roy).

Quinta de la Rosa, 1992

Vintage Port

93 pts Robert Parker

"The powerhouse 1992 Vintage Port exhibits a huge, highly extracted, chocolate and black-raspberry-scented nose, full body, unctuously-textured flavors, moderate tannin, and a chewy, long finish. It requires 7-8 years of cellaring as it is revealing more structure than other 1992s. It should keep for 25-30 years." Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Taylor's Port, 1992

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Late Bottled Vintage port is from a single year. The wine ages 4-6 years in old oak casks (opposed to Vintage that ages 2-3). LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour. This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling it, thereby producing a wine with the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood.

Dow's Port, 1992

Quinta do Bonfim

(a very rare bottle from the 1992 vintage)

*** 93 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews

Robert Parker 93 points
“Dow's 1992 Quinta do Bomfim is an expressive, fragrant, up-front style of port with a pungent, peppery, floral, cassis-scented nose, full-bodied, rich, chewy, ripe flavors, light tannin, and sensational extract and length. The wine explodes on the back of the palate, announcing its considerable richness and intensity. This port should drink well young, and last for 30 years.”
Wine Spectator 92 points.
"Much better than from barrel. Perhaps better than Dow's blended 1991 vintage Port.
