Taylor’s Vintage Port 1994


SKU: 10548 Categories: , , Tags: , , , ,

For more than three centuries, Taylor’s Port has been crafting some of Portugal’s most exquisite fortified wines. Renowned for its exceptional quality and unique character, Taylor’s Port boasts a rich legacy spanning generations, earning it a cherished place among wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.

1994 was an exceptional vintage for Port, widely regarded as one of the best of the past 25 years. The previous three years had been marred by drought, so the wet winter of 1994 was welcome. March and April were both warm and dry, with wet weather striking again in May disrupting the flowering. The weather then remained steady for the rest of the growing season; the hot days and cool nights helped ripen the grapes without sacrificing acidity.

This classically made, opaque purple-coloured wine is crammed with black fruits (blueberries and cassis). It reveals high tannin and a reserved style, but it is enormously constituted with massive body, a formidable mid-palate, and exceptional length. It is a young, rich, powerful Taylor that will require 10-15 years of aging. Compared to the more flashy, forward style of the 1992, the 1994 has more in common with such vintages as 1977 and 1970.

Joe’s Judgements

A spectacular vintage port that has everything you’ll ever want from a vintage port. Taylors Vintage Port 1994 is structured, balanced, with a massive concentration of black fruit, intense and full flavoured. Ripe plum, blueberry and blackberry with tertiary notes of dried fruits showing up mid-palate. Figs, raisins and prunes leap out of the glass. Vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, leather and cloves float around on the nose. Supremely complex aroma and palate, with supple but dense tannins. The alcohol is a little hot too, something I really like in vintage port.

Drinking amazingly well now, but can get kept for decades longer. Definitely get involved

*Rated 4.7/5 on Vivino. One of the top 1% wines in the world on the site
