|||| $139 | Graham’s 1994 Vintage Port

Description

1994 was an exceptional vintage for Port, widely regarded as one of the best of the previous 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. A slight threat of rain in September pushed a few producers to harvest early and rain did fall, but most producers waited until afterwards to pick.

 

The resulting wines were extremely rich, ripe and structured. Many are still drinking relatively young, while others have started to open up beautifully. Nearly all will have plenty of life in them yet. The majority of major Port houses declared the vintage.”

-Wine Searcher

 
“In a port tasting, tasting Graham’s is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham’s. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2035.”
-Wine Advocate, 96 Points

“A big, tough, young vintage Port that’s closed and difficult to taste. Emits lovely aromas of chocolate, berry and plum, and is full-bodied with lots of sweet, fruit flavors and masses of velvety tannins. Long, sweet finish. Best after 2010. 11,000 cases made.”
-Wine Spectator, 95 Points
