1991 Morgan

Post by AHB » 21:10 Sat 02 Jul 2016

Drunk at the Yeatman after watching the Sao Joao fireworks. Deep cherry red with a hint of brick, wide rim and opaque centre. Fragrant black cherry juice on the nose, touched with a shade of vanilla. Gorgeous ripe fruit on the palate with lovely toasted tannins; mouthwatering acidity combines to give a great palate. Youthful and fruity, full of black cherry and chocolate this generates a tremendous aftertaste and a long dark chocolate finish. Still youthful and quite forceful this is a great bottle of the reliable port. 90/100.
