Product Description

Dark red ruby edge.Dense blackcurrant fruit very fresh and elegant incredible balance of fine fruit and the first hints of bottle maturity.A textbook year in the vineyard with low yields and moderate temperatures throughout the season has made this incredibly dense port with a freshness of fruit in character with the 1963s and 1912s.On the palate it is very full with lots of fine tannins which carry loads of fresh blackcurrant fruit. The youth it still holds today is the testament of how extraordinary this vintage is and the capacity it has to continue to age for the rest of this century. JAMES SUCKLING -THE WINE SPECTATOR APRIL 1997 &ndash 100 POINTS "Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977 - probably even better than that of the legendary vintage - more like the breathtaking 1948. Masses of color aroma and fruit flavor. Big full bodied and very sweet with tons of tannins and a sweet finish." "Choosing the Wine of the Year is no easy task when there are so many classic wines worthy of the honor. It is even more difficult when two of those wines have perfect 100-point ratings and are made by the same winemaker. So we decided to double your pleasure by choosing both Fonseca Vintage Port 1994 and Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 1994 for the No. 1 position on Wine Spectator' annual Top 100 list for 1997. This marks the first time in the history of Wine Spectator' Top 100 that two wines have earned top honor." Thanks James! www.fonscea.pt - Vintage may differ from the image shown.
