1991 Morgan Vintage Port

Post by AHB » 11:50 Sat 13 Oct 2007

The remaining half bottle from the bottle opened on 9/10/07, having been stored in a full half bottle in a fridge for 3 days.

A deep red colour, holding right into the rim, the colour expected of a vintage port around 15 years of age. The nose is slightly hot, but brings sweet mulberries out of the glass. A sweet entry, full of fruit, perhaps a touch drying from the tannins. The acidic structure is light, balanced and surrounded by fruit. The tannins are soft and hidden away. Midpalate development is lovely, bringing lots of layers of fruit, all-spice and a touch of pepperiness. A soft aftertaste starts quickly, holds for a while and then fades quickly away. This is a very pleasant drink today and one which is likely to be just as good in 10 years time. 6/6 or 91/100.
