1963 Morgan vintage port

Post by uncle tom » 20:06 Sat 29 Dec 2007

After clearing both the xmas offline leftovers and a severe cold, I have time for just one TN before escaping to warmer climes.

Decanted yesterday, came very cleanly off it's sediment, but a musty bottle stink gave some cause for concern initially.

Was fully composed last night after nine hours in decanter, and still drinking well today.

A little on the pale side, but otherwise this wine is typical of the vintage - well dimensioned and agreeable, with nose, palate and finish in good proportion - but moving towards decline as it struggles to handle the spirit.

To score:

For immediate gratification this makes it into the top quartile - but not by a mile, so an 8

Where's it going? I think this wine is going to dry out and become spiritous - there is nothing to be gained from giving it more time.

Score 8-6

- one to drink soon!
