Here is Mr P’s review from 1995:

Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house’s most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years.

Lonny Might Be Turning Sixty (Tilia, Mpls): Drank a small pour over 20 minutes. Well put together and drinking great now too. Kirsch, bright nose, wood spices, blackberry liqueur, raisin, medium body, nice tannins and very good overall balance. 93+ to 94pts.

At 1862, with the cheese course. What a beautiful subtle port. Ample fruit and complexity. Light to medium bodied.

Seems to be in a middle phase: it’s not youthfully intense or overly tannic–so it’s entirely and beautifully drinkable–but it’s also not expansive or subtle. Beyond enjoyable and no harm in opening now but it could end up even better in ten years.
