Quarles Harris Vintage Porto 1994 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Fragrant wild berries and prunes on the nose

Full bodied and densely packed on the palate

Dark, dense finish of stewed berries, anise, and pepper

Summary:

It's incredible how youthful this Port tastes at 18 years of age!  The flavors are still rich and the core is dense.  I wish I had a case to stretch out over the next decade or more.

Actually, this was poured by PB of this blog with dessert after an Italian feast.  The dessert was panna cotta with fresh berries and the pairing was perfect.  If you have this wine, enjoy anytime over the next quarter of a century.  If you're looking to purchase this wine, the release price was $55 and a few internet prices show $60-80.  Raise a glass!

Just found a couple of bottles at Trader Joe's mixed in with the 2007 vintage. Priced under $40. Lucky day!
