Vintage:1994 Colour:Red Style:Fortified/Dessert
The good colour extraction experienced during this vintage together with the excellent ripe fruit characteristics is likely to ensure that this will be one of the finest Vintage Ports produced during the last 20 to 30 years. This Vintage is beginning to show some of the wonderful characteristics of bottle matured wine. It can be drunk now but will repay a few more years in your cellar. This wine has an intense floral nose - tremendous !
Ageing Potential:3-5 Years

Luscious‰Û_it tastes rather like liquid red gems‰.
