1994 Single Harvest Tawny Port (450 cl) Jeroboam Size
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.

1994 was a great vintage for Port, with a slow and long ripening period to add a great deal of complexity to the wine. This example of vintage Port, from Qunita de la Rosa, is a wine of concentration and complexity but with great restraint as one can always expect from la Rosa. The wine is now entering its drinking "window" and will give great pleasure from now until 2030 at least.
The la Rosa 1994 Vintage Port is more delicate and subtle than say the muscular 1992, and though likely to last as long, will come forward for drinking sooner. It has intense colour and is a nicely elegant and complex wine which will cellar well.

Late Bottled Vintage Port
The 1992 Late Bottled Vintage Port from Quinta de al Rosa is now a red orange colour. Nose of sweet black cherry, alcohol and cocoa. Flavour starts with sweet cherry and raisins, followed by some cherry-chocolate. Very smooth and pleasant.

Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port
Quinta do Noval is a much-venerated name in the Douro Valley and Nacional is undoubtedly one of the most legendary fortified wines in the world. It is produced from a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines that have remained untouched by Phylloxera and has an average production of between 250 and 275 cases. 1994 was widely considered to be an exceptional vintage for Ports of fabulous harmony and incredible structure.
99 pts Robert Parker - Very deep colour. Amazingly fresh, focused nose with lovely clarity and precision. Notes of blackberry, plum and raspberry.

Quinta do Passadouro, Vintage Port
In the nose a lot of alcohol. It has a powerful nose but it’s not very complex. Liquorice, dark fruit, dark chocolate. There is also an amaretto cookie element coming through which is quite nice.
Taste: A creamy velvet texture. At the start a lot of freshness which is followed up very quickly with a lot of alcohol that attacks the palate. Dried fruit, some liquorice, and a really nice acidity.

***91 Points- CellarTracker***
Fourth bottle from a half case purchased ten years ago and in fine fettle. Mature and drinking well now at 22 years of age, still vigorous and with gentle tertiary development in the form of some nutty warmth, ever so slightly stalky on the nose. Core of black cherries and dark chocolate on the palate, medium weight and intensity, light tannins, no excessive alcoholic heat, good length. A solid performance.
