1994 Fonseca Vintage Port

SKU #240109 100 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port. *No. 1 Top 100 Wines of 1997, Cellar Selection* (JS) Inner quote mark (4/1997)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/1996)

96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Very deep in color, with a restrained, underlying fruit nose, brooding yet ripe: not giving away much. Soft and ripe initially with big structured tannins building in the mouth, and leading to a massive peacock’s tail of a finish. (RM) Inner quote mark (10/2014)
