1994 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port
Terrific aromas of berries and violets, with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine, silky tannins that build on the palate and caress the tongue. Outstanding concentration and harmony. Greatest Vesúvio this century. Best after 2010.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This impressive wine, with an opaque ruby/purple color, reveals excellent richness, layers of flavor, well-integrated alcohol and tannin, moderate sweetness, and a long, heady finish. Pure and impressively built, it should drink well in 5-7 years. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.
Spicy nose and amazingly sweet on the palate -- quite treacley. Some tar too. Lots of potential with macerated raisin flavours. Lots of acidity! I seriously misjudged this wine in a big port tasting four years ago. 18.5/20 points.
