Part of a range of Morgan ports made available by Christie's for buyers to taste prior to the fine wine sale of Thursday November 2006.
Very deep colour, indicating a huge amount of extract. Opaque in the centre and absolutely no hint of browning. Nose was a little closed with hints of blueberries and an odd dusty tone countered by a freshness from the spirit. Clean entry with an initial impact of blueberry juice before a tannic hand grabs your teeth and cheeks. The tannins slowly back off and leave you with the fruit bomb again. The aftertaste starts with the dry, tannic grip which fades through a slightly off-putting bitterness before changing again to a long length of bitter chocolate. This will certainly improve over time. 6-8 or 88/100.
