Re: 1991 Smith Woodhouse

SW91. Red-pink, 20% opaque. Nose revolting. Taste less revolting — but this is not praise.

Re: 1991 Noval Nacional

NN91. Red-pink 40%. Red cherry, soft and oleaginous, good length, lots of heat. This is good Port, texture very fine but not a giant, and not the best here.

Re: 1991 Taylor Vargellas

TV91. Dark dark red, 90% opaque. Dark plum, closed, dry. Might end up as excellent, might not, but needs another decade in the cellar before which can be known.

Re: 1991 Gould Campbell

GC91. Dark red, 60% opaque. Nose dirty, bacterial. CSD, sitting to my right, said the nose was was “interesting but not flawed, very weak”. Palate thin and dry. Not right.

G91. Glorious red, 50% opaque. Full bodied and red fruited, slightly closed, some menthol and violets. I like the weight, but it's slightly closed as if needing more time in the cellar. Liked.

D91. Glorious red, 50% opaque. Lovely red cherry, mid weight, heat. Also a dry spice behind. Liked, but lighter and overdeveloped for its twenty-eight years.

Do you want the placemats regenerated to credit GEAG/CSD with the Graham?

@ all - if anyone can get hold of Chris Doty to tell him to turn up, I will decant the G, which I have immediately to hand, now.
Nudged by WhatsApp. He’s coming.

Edit: nudged too late. He had already posted.
