1994 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: A 1994 Vintage Port makes a great 25 year old wine gift for a 25th birthday or anniversary: 1994 was one of the greatest vintages of the 20th Century that produced classic, monumental port wines with rich fruit character. While these wines can be approached in their youth, the best need 20 years in bottle, making them mature for drinking now or perfect to age for another 20 years. Our wine buyer highly recommends the 1994 Taylor's Vintage Port , an outstanding Vintage Port that scored an incredible 100 points from Wine Spectator and 97 from Robert Parker.
 
Italian: In Tuscany, the Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile and Brunello had a very good year with a warm early Spring. The good weather conditions carried through to the harvest season with healthy, ripe fruit. In Piedmont prolonged rain caused serious problems, however a few producers still made good Barolo and Barbaresco wines.
 
Bordeaux: The 1994 vintage is generally rated as good but a little inconsistent. The top estates produced some very fine wines that are far superior to those in the poor years between 1991 and 1993. The best 1994 Bordeaux wines are characterised by high tannin levels with rich fruit and should mature well over the next few years.
 
Spain: This was the ‘Aaah!’ vintage; after three years of drought and indifferent quality, nature relented and provided one of the best vintages of the century (compared by many producers with the legendary 1964). The grapes showed tremendous ripeness, colour and extract. This was a truly great vintage in the making, although (or perhaps because) it was relatively low in quantity.

1994 Ferreira, 1994

Late Bottled Vintage Port - HALF BOTTLE 37.5cl
Includes original gift box

Special release from the Ferreira Cellars.

When a wine is as dense, plummy and pretty as this, you're in business. It's somewhat round and fat, but it's rightly balanced by driving cherry fruit and bitter chocolate. An LBV rich enough to top off vanilla ice cream yet vital enough to be drunk by the glass is a good thing to have in the house.

Tasting notes

Made in an attractive, more muscular style, the 1994 displays a dark ruby/purple color, spicy, meaty, curranty aromas with a touch of cedar and earth, moderate tannin, and good flesh and structure. It may develop into an upper eighty point wine if the tannin melts away without a loss of fruit.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, 1994

St Julien 2nd Growth Classification

" Ducru is on a roll, with fine efforts over recent vintages, including an exceptional 1994, spectacular 1995, and what looks to be an equally profound, super-concentrated 1996. A top-notch effort in this vintage, Ducru-Beaucaillou's 1994 displays a dark purple color, a textbook, cassis, mineral, licorice, and floral-scented nose, medium body, outstanding extract and purity, moderate tannin, and a persuasively rich, sweet, spicy finish. Everything is well-integrated (including the tannin). This should prove to be a classic St.-Julien." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 1997. Parker Rating 90/100 (outstanding)

Chateau Haut Brion, 1994

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 92 Points Robert Parker ***

Reviews
"This is one of the surprise sleeper wines of the vintage which has more successes than many people suspect in spite of all the rain. The tremendous drainage enjoyed by the Haut Brion vineyard worked in its favor during this wet September harvest. The color is deep plum/ruby with a bit of lightening at the edge. Notes of compost, truffle, earth, spice box, dried herbs, and licorice compete with sweet black cherry and currant fruit. The wine is medium-bodied, with a relatively plump, chewy feel to it. It is certainly one of the top half dozen or so wines of the vintage.

Chateau Leoville Poyferre, 1994

St Julien 2me Cru Classe

Reviews:
A garnet core with deep brick rim, slightly brighter than the 1993. The nose is very conservative upon the first couple of sniffs, but be patient because it evolves an attractive mulberry scented aromas with touches of bilberry and Satsuma. The palate is medium-bodied, harmonious, firm tannins, rather conservative but with very good weight and far more freshness and vigour that I was expecting. Quite meaty and very savoury towards the rustic finish, it is almost as if it wants to be Figeac! Very fine considering the vintage and far superior to the lamentable 1993. Drink now-2014 Tasted March 2008.

Chateau Montrose, 1994

St Estephe Second Grand Cru classé

*** 91 Points Outstanding - Robert Parker ***

Montrose has been one of Bordeaux's most consistently successful chateaux since 1989. An opaque purple color suggests a wine of considerable intensity. One of the most successful 1994s of the northern Medoc, the wine's closed aromatics offer jammy black fruits, plums, spice, and earth. On the palate, there is impressive extract, purity, and copious amounts of sweet blackcurrant fruit nicely balanced by moderate yet ripe tannin. Medium-bodied, with excellent to outstanding concentration, this impressive Montrose should be close to full maturity with another 4-5 years of cellaring.

Chateau Palmer, 1994

Margaux 3me Cru Classe

Palmer's 1994 is a successful wine for the vintage. The large Merlot component gives the wine a silky texture, and an up-front, sweet, black-cherry and plum-scented nose with toasty oak and floral scents. Medium-bodied, round, and nicely concentrated, this charming, elegant wine is well-proportioned and harmonious. Neither acidity, tannin, nor alcohol stand out in this well-balanced 1994.

Cockburn Port, 1994

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.

Dow's Port, 1994

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.

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".
