Barros Port, 1994

New

Vintage Port

A very good port Port that has a very good complexity and mouth feel. Drinking well now as showing some maturity with a little tannin. This will hold for another decade, not as backward as some of the other port producers. 90/100 TC - Barros Tasting @ Barros Mar 2016.

Cockburn Port, 1994

Vintage Port

Cockburn's is one of the most recognised names in Port; the Special Reserve ruby is probably one of the most widely distributed Port brands available. In 1815, the year that Wellington defeated Bonaparte at Waterloo, the business was established by Robert Cockburn, who had visited Portugal when serving in Wellington's army.

The 1994 Cockburn performed on a par with the likes of Taylor, Graham and Fonseca. It is a classic port and undoubtedle their best since 1977. There is elegance and masses of concentrated fruits, and a dry and excessively long finish.

Fonseca Port, 1994

Vintage Port (Half Bottle - 37.5 cl)

*** 97 Points - Parker ***

reviews: "One of the most spectacular 1994s, this opaque purple-colored wine is an exotic, flamboyant, ostentatious port. Extremely fragrant and pungent, with a flashy display of jammy cassis, pepper, licorice, and truffles, this port is an attention-grabber. Awesomely rich, and full-bodied, with superb length, richness, and overall balance, it possesses a huge mid-palate, layers of flavor, an unctuous texture, and a blockbuster finish. Everything is in place, with the brandy and tannin well-integrated, even concealed by the masses of fruit and glycerin. This wine will drink fabulously well at age ten, but keep for up to thirty years".

Taylor's Port, 1994

Vintage Port

Reviews:
100 Points – Wine Spectator
"In a word, superb. It's full-bodied, moderately sweet and incredibly tannic, but there's amazing finesse and refinement to the texture, not to mention fabulous, concentrated aromas of raspberries, violets and other flowers. Perhaps the greatest Taylor ever, it's better than either the '92 or the '70, though it's very like the '70 in structure."

This classically made, opaque purple-coloured wine is crammed with black fruits (blueberries and cassis). It reveals high tannin and a reserved style, but it is enormously constituted with massive body, a formidable mid-palate, and exceptional length.

Warre's Vintage Port, 1994

Vintage Port - Magnum bottle 150cl

An outstanding port scoring 94 points (Robert Parker) "One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-coloured wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length. Tasters should take note of the wealth of peppery, liquorice-scented and flavoured raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Look for it to be ready to drink in 10-12 years, and keep for 30+. This is a profound example of Warre vintage port." Parker Wine Advocate

Dow's Port, 1994

Vintage Port

** 97 Points Lisa perotti Brown - in Asia **
** 96 points Robert Parker **

Reviews
"Deep garnet colour. The nose is just beginning to evolve into musky, dried plum and raisin aromas with whiffs of tree bark, nutmeg, cumin and cloves. The palate is seriously big and voluptuous with medium to high acidity and a medium to firm level of fine tannins. Very long finish." In Asia.

"The massive 1994 is unquestionably the finest Dow I have tasted since the 1977. This opaque purple-colored wine is not as developed or flamboyant as Fonseca, but it is super-concentrated and multi-layered, with huge masses of fruit and some tannin in the finish.

Grahams Port, 1994

Vintage Port

96 Points (parker)

Reviews: "In a port tasting, tasting Graham's is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham's. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2035." Parker Wine Advocate 1996

Grahams Port, 1994

Single Harvest Tawny Port Presented In original Gift Tube

The 1994 Grahams Single Harvest has incredible aromas of dried fruit leaping from the glass. The palate is intensely flavoured with lovely notes of dried orange, and spice wrapped up in a full-bodied smooth texture. This is offset by a lovely note of molasses and figs. Perfectly balanced with a long finish this Graham’s 1994 Tawny Port is a treat and a rarity.

Martinez Vintage Port, 1994

Vintage Port

*** 95/100 - Wine Spectator ***
The 1994 Martinez Vintage Port is a glass-staining opaque purple colour. It exhibits a classy nose of floral notes, damp earth, spice box, licorice, and black fruit compote. Medium weight on the palate with firm tannins but more than ample fruit for balance, this is a savoury, lengthy effort that should evolve for another 6-8 years and drink well.

Reviews:
A classy young Port, full-bodied and brimming with fruit flavour and silky, fine tannins that kick in on the finish. A subtle, young wine that takes you by surprise. Best after 2010. Ranked 22 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 in 1997.

Niepoort Port, 1994
