*** 95/100 - Wine Spectator ***
The 1994 Martinez Vintage Port is a glass-staining opaque purple colour. It exhibits a classy nose of floral notes, damp earth, spice box, licorice, and black fruit compote. Medium weight on the palate with firm tannins but more than ample fruit for balance, this is a savoury, lengthy effort that should evolve for another 6-8 years and drink well.
A classy young Port, full-bodied and brimming with fruit flavour and silky, fine tannins that kick in on the finish. A subtle, young wine that takes you by surprise. Best after 2010. Ranked 22 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 in 1997.

The 1994 Offley Vintage Port has a beautiful light brick color. The nose is warm, intense and pervasive, with a lot of roasted almonds, black cherry and dark chocolate. There is quite a bit of alcohol upfront, reminding of an Amaretto. Full bodied with a smooth and creamy texture and the same layers of flavors on the palate. The chocolate lingers for minutes.

Vintage Port, Ramos Pinto
The earthy nose is a little mute, but the maturing palate is rich and full of softening black fruit. The wine is now coming into its own, and while it lacks the complexity and punch of a great Port, it has plenty going on in its favor, including layers of spice and sweetness on the finish.

94 Points (outstanding) Wine Journal ***
Reviews: "This has an ethereal nose, nice lift with secondary aromas beginning to come through, with blackberry leaf, dried orange peel, a touch of walnut and honey. Expressive, if a little too open-knit. There is a hint of glue just in the background but it does not get in the way. The palate is very well balance, quite suave with very fine tannins, with subtle hints of cloves, dried herbs and a touch of capsicum with elegant very supple finish. Excellent. Drink now-2035."

An outstanding port scoring 94 points (Robert Parker)
"One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-coloured wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length. Tasters should take note of the wealth of peppery, liquorice-scented and flavoured raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Look for it to be ready to drink in 10-12 years, and keep for 30+. This is a profound example of Warre vintage port." Parker Wine Advocate 1996.

Late Bottled Vintage Port - HALF BOTTLE 37.5cl Includes original gift box
Special release from the Ferreira Cellars.
When a wine is as dense, plummy and pretty as this, you're in business. It's somewhat round and fat, but it's rightly balanced by driving cherry fruit and bitter chocolate. An LBV rich enough to top off vanilla ice cream yet vital enough to be drunk by the glass is a good thing to have in the house.
