1994 Smith Woodhouse VP

Post by RonnieRoots » 14:58 Sun 14 Oct 2007

Tasted blind, didn't make any notes, so no proper TN, just impressions. Nice port, that reminded me somewhat of Croft in style, although the Croft 1994 has a better punch. Medium bodied, mainly dark flavours, angular and a tannin structure that is just starting to integrate into the flavours. Give it 5 more years at least, but don't let it age for a real long term. I guessed 1994 correctly, but got the house wrong (guessed Croft, by lack of a better guess) and LadyR got Smith Woodhouse, but thought it was 1997. We both agreed it was about 89 / 90 points.
