1985 Morgan

Post by AHB » 08:30 Fri 01 Aug 2008

Part of a range of Morgan ports made available by Christie’s for buyers to taste prior to the fine wine sale of Thursday 16 November 2006.

Similar in colour to the 1977. A sweet cherry juice nose, almost as sweet as bubble gum. A swirl releases the spirit but the fruit remains present. Sweeter into the mouth than any of the previous wines. The tannins are fully integrated around a core of cherry juice and tobacco. The aftertaste is pleasant and of reasonable length, bringing flavours of warm cedar wood and balsamic vinegar. 6-5 or 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
