My experience with Tesco 1994 is varied. Some bottles seem to drink very well while others show poorly. This is one of the latter. Deep red, slightly bricking on the rim. A touch stinky on the nose, very much smelling of "Goober's Grape Jelly"; not overly attractive. Hollow and subdued on the palate, fruit is slow to appear and is a touch stewed. Stewed fruit also shows on the finish. This port seems to suffer from significant bottle variation. This bottle is drinkable, but not overly enjoyable. 80/100 Decanted 10 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
