1991 Morgan vintage port

Post by AHB » 20:49 Wed 03 Feb 2010

The first bottle of Morgan 1991 of the year.

Deep red colour, still opaque at the centre. Ripe blackcurrants exploded out of the bottle as this was being decanted and were all over the nose in the glass, with just a little bit of dustiness. Medium bodied in the mouth, full of blackcurrant fruit and dark chocolate tannins. Fabulous structure to this wine and such a pleasure to sip and experience the depth of flavour it offers. Big aftertaste swamps the mouth and leaves a long and dominating length that starts as dark chocolate and sour cherry, but slowly fades to just the dark chocolate. A big port and one of the best showings to date. Wonderful!

92/100. Drunk 3 Feb 2010 after 24 hours in the decanter.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
