1991 Churchill's vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:33 Mon 02 May 2011

Mid red colour, some early maturity on the rim. Nosing of slightly rotten fruit and quite spirity. Smooth in the mouth, gently tannic and giving the impression of over-ripe fruit. More tannic than I remember from previous bottles. Chewy aftertaste, dark chocolate finish of good length. Better than I recall the bottles showing at TCP. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
