This was stunning. Very fine and svelte for a vintage port, but beautifully balanced. Full and scented yet with a firm peppery undertow. Very fine wine indeed. (It was great to see a vintage port alongside other, less alcoholic wine classics and to see it shine so.)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 97

Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this. In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. This is a massive, magnificently rich, full-bodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine's formidable structure. This monumental 30-50 year port is a must purchase for port aficionados.! Also noteworthy is the fact that the 1992 Taylor commemorates the 300th anniversary of this firm, as evidenced by the special bottle Taylor used for this port.

Fresh and lively, with raisin, spice and hints of blackberry. Full-bodied and very tight, with plenty of tannins. Very long. Needs to open. '91/'92 Port retrospective. 6,200 cases made.

For The Love of Port Author: Roy Hersh Issue: Issue 32

Dark, opaque magenta. A profound spicy nose of dark fruits such as cassis, boysenberry and black cherry. Lush and dense with extraordinary extract and deeply concentrated flavors. Best known for its tercentenary anniversary, the ’92 is a great example of young Taylor’s vintage Port showing its power, brutish tannins and longevity. The finish flashes brilliant complexity even at this age and a persistent finish. Drink now through 2050. In retrospect, I believe I underrated this one.
