Vintage Port 1994 Wooden Gift Box
97 points, “A blackstrap, powerful Port. Black, with intense aromas of raspberries, raisins, flowers and stems. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a long, rich finish. Tannins pull at your palate. A wine for the future.” – James Suckling
96 points, “It’s a beauty, with all that Dow power and structure that I’ve loved over the years – even after some hours of decanting. Intensely concentrated in flavour, without being jammy, this lingers on the gripping finish after starting with a touch of mint.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 1994 is one of the finest Dow’s Vintage Ports of the second half of the 20th Century. Because it was loved so much by wine critics, experts, writers and drinkers all around the globe, the Symington family has decided to issue a limited re-release in Autumn 2021, complete with a stylish wooden gift box and 25 years of bottle age.
The majority of the grapes come from the iconic Quinta do Bomfim in Cima Corgo, with the remainder from the no-less-impressive Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira in Douro Superior. Belying its 27 years of age, Dow’s Vintage Port 1994 is remarkably fresh, suggesting a long life ahead of it. Muscular notes of blackcurrant, liquorice, raisin, damson, violet and fruitcake are seasoned with that classic Dow’s peppery character. A fine choice for festive fare and cheeseboards or as a gift for marking a special 1994 anniversary.
Dow’s – owned by the Symington family – ranks amongst Port’s most famous names and is renowned for its powerhouse style. Their coveted releases use grapes from the phenomenal Quinta do Bomfim vineyard and tend to be drier and exceptionally long-lived. The Symington family are trusted hands because they are the world’s leading producer of premium Port and the biggest vineyard owner in the Douro Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site of jaw-dropping beauty. The company is also B Corp Certified, which means they are also on it when it comes to the environment, sustainability, their people, their supply chain and giving back to the community.
