1977 Morgan

Post by AHB » 22:21 Sun 27 Dec 2015

Rose red with a lovely hue, 50% opaque. Sweet redcurrant and nutmeg on the nose, lovely and attractive. Sweet and poised on the palate, medium bodied but with plenty of lively spiciness with the sweet fruit all set off by a lovely glowing acidity. There are still some very soft tannins that mainly show on the aftertaste as a gentle note of chocolate in the long and tasty finish - a finish which goes through several phases of flavours. Never a blockbuster, this is one of the best showings of this port I have yet had. Such a pity it's my last bottle. 89/100. Drunk 19-Nov-15. Decanted 2 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
