1991 Taylor Vargellas

Post by flash_uk » 21:37 Sat 29 Nov 2014

Decanted 24hrs. 70% opacity, rich red. Nose quite fresh, slight spiritous hint, black cherries and chocolate, but not pronounced, and faint spices. In the mouth, a nice full mouthfeel, fruit to begin gives way to a balance of acidity and plenty of tannin. Again black cherries.

I tasted at one hour after decant, and didn't take a note. But 24 hrs later it is more integrated, and the acidity burn has dissipated.

Very nice. Still feels quite young. The next 5 bottles can hibernate for some time. Maybe one in 2016 and then another in 2021.
