Description

Dow's 1994 Vintage Port

Grapes: Mostly Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, aged 18 months in seasoned barrels, bottled unfined & unfiltered

Producer Tasting Note:

An iconic vintage year producing exceptional wines. The 1994 Vintage Port is wonderfully fresh with focused fruit aromas and notes of liquorice. Seductive and muscular on the palate with Dow’s typical peppery tannins underpinning incredible structure, the 1994 is irresistible now, yet still has decades ahead of it.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"On the nose rich and voluptuous fruit aromas of wild berries, roses and violets. On the palate intense fruit flavours and bitter chocolate, full bodied, with plenty of tannins and an excellent fruity aftertaste."

18/20 points, Decanter, January 2015

"The 1994 Vintage Port is set for re-release. It has about 92 grams per liter of residual sugar. It's a beauty, with all that Dow power and structure that I've loved over the years--even after some hours of decanting. Intensely concentrated in flavor, without being jammy, this lingers on the gripping finish after starting with a touch of mint. Serious and brooding, it is not yet as complex and as developed as it could be--but this is Port and that will come in time. Be patient. In the meanwhile, if you must crack this now, give it a few hours in a decanter, to state the obvious. This is a terrific Dow's VP that is still growing and improving. It is still about its potential in some ways and it may well exceed expectations. It will certainly acquire even more complexity with more cellaring. Personally, I would try to give it at least another decade in the cellar." Drink 2020-2060

96/100 points, Mark Squires, WINE ADVOCATE, October 2016
