"The 1994 Croft exhibits an impressive dark ruby/purple color, and a developed, forward, more evolved style than expected. It is moderately sweet, full-bodied, expansive, pure, and rich, but made in an up-front, flattering style. Although outstanding, it is not one of the superstars of the vintage. It will keep for twenty years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020". 90 points. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.

Madeira is made on the volcanic island of the same name situated in the Atlantic ocean some 400 miles off the North African coast. The sub-tropical island was discovered in 1419 and named for the word for wood or timber.
This sweet, amber-tinged Madeira, has keen acidity and a long and mellow finish, with a certain delicacy.

*** 97 Points - Parker ***
reviews: "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".

1994 Single Harvest Tawny Port (450 cl) Jeroboam Size
The 1994 Grahams Single Harvest has incredible aromas of dried fruit leaping from the glass. The palate is intensely flavoured with lovely notes of dried orange, and spice wrapped up in a full-bodied smooth texture. This is offset by a lovely note of molasses and figs. Perfectly balanced with a long finish this Graham’s 1994 Tawny Port is a treat and a rarity.

Inferno is one of five viticultural sub-zones specifically identified as producing Valtellina wines of particularly high quality: the other four are Grumello, Sassella, Maroggia and Valgella. Inferno means 'hell' in Italian, and refers to the slopes between Sondrio town and the village of Tresivio. Although DOC laws do not explain the origins of this name, it has been suggested that in summer the slopes here get noticeably hotter than the rest of the valley. Just across Sondrio to the west is Sassella, the finest of the Valtellina sub-zones.

Only 300 bottles released by popular demand. The 1994 Quevedo was voted "Port of the Night" during a recent tasting with Oscar and so we persuaded him to release a small quantity.
The 1994 Quevedo Colheita is an outstanding quality and value effort from this family-run estate. Oscar and Claudia Quevedo have produced a light brown port with hints of amber. On the palate there are nuts and a lovely light molasses note with coffee and spices The finish is long and lingering as befits a quality port such as this. Outstanding!

1994 was a great vintage for Port, with a slow and long ripening period to add a great deal of complexity to the wine. This example of vintage Port, from Qunita de la Rosa, is a wine of concentration and complexity but with great restraint as one can always expect from la Rosa. The wine is now entering its drinking "window" and will give great pleasure from now until 2030 at least.
The la Rosa 1994 Vintage Port is more delicate and subtle than say the muscular 1992, and though likely to last as long, will come forward for drinking sooner. It has intense colour and is a nicely elegant and complex wine which will cellar well.
