Robert Parker

One of the most spectacular 1994s, this opaque purple-colored wine is an exotic, flamboyant, ostentatious port. Extremely fragrant and pungent, with a flashy display of jammy cassis, pepper, licorice, and truffles, this port is an attention-grabber. Awesomely rich, and full-bodied, with superb length, richness, and overall balance, it possesses a huge mid-palate, layers of flavor, an unctuous texture, and a blockbuster finish. Everything is in place, with the brandy and tannin well-integrated, even concealed by the masses of fruit and glycerin. This wine will drink fabulously well at age ten, but keep for up to thirty years. Anticipated maturity. 2002-2035. 97 points

Richard Hemming

Very closed in comparison with the 1995 Guimaraens - stately and dense. Hints of spice, fruit-cake, violets and blossom. Pure, focused, very ripe and youthful - beautiful red fruit preserve flavours, and impressive length. Still extremely young and hasn`t even begun to hint at much secondary character on the palate yet. 17+ points
