1994 Tesco

Post by angeleyes » 23:53 Sun 13 Dec 2009

Label says bottled by Symington Family Estates. Cork gives no clue to the house - VINTAGE PORT 1994, with a small capital 'B' in a circle underneath.

Dark ruby colour. Nose is leathery and plummy, and in the mouth, thick, sweet. Closed, flavours hidden behind a bitter chocolate finish, but after a couple of hours the nose is showing some herbs and aniseed amongst the fruit. Thick and fruity in the mouth, tannic and liquorice finish. Good moderate sweetness. Not bad stuff.

Hadn't changed much by the second evening (last night). Still a grippy tannic finish. Lovely port that got finished off!

By accidently browsing on the Tesco webpage it looks like the Tesco BOB Vintage 1994 port is from Quarles Harris. So this should be good.
