Port, 1992

1992 produced Port of great concentration and tannic structure, a great year. However, the likes of Graham's, Dow's, Cockburn's, Warre's, and Quinta do Noval all declared in 1991, precluding them from 1992.

Port vintages are declared when a port house (estate) feels that their wine in a particular vintage is of the highest quality. There is not always uniform agreement between houses as to whether a year should be declared a vintage, and on average there are around three declarations each decade.

Market forces can also influence a vintage declaration, i.e. whether the market can absorb another vintage at a particular time.
