40 hours decanted.

Heavy uncouth thick, rich dark black peppered blue berries with a hint of black licorice in the back. A beautiful dark chocolate finish of 45 seconds. This is a monster of a port.

What the hell happened at our tasting?!?!

I would say 40 hours of decant is perfect for this port

Thanks for the notes. You were smart to decant for so long. I have several of these but after tasting 1994 Taylor, Fonseca and Warre, I decided to let them sleep until at least 2014, if not 2024. All of these top 94s seem to be big monster ports.
actually, we had it opened for 6 hours I believe, and it was medium bodied, raisiny and disjointed. hardly the blockbuster we expected, so I took it home with expectation of making some spaghetti bolognes but forgot and tried it 2 days later and noticed a huge change =)

 Has anyone had this 1994 vintage port recently? A friend of mine is opening it in the next few days 

I have, and was disappointed.  It's too young, IMHO, but then I prefer my ports fully aged, especially the big boys from top vintages.  If you must drink it now, I suggest a loooooooooooong decant as per the notes above.  At least a full day.
