1991 Churchill

Post by AHB » 08:56 Mon 28 Dec 2015

The surprise of the night for me. Mature red but with no bricking; 60% opaque. Lovely youthful nose with jellied red fruit. A nice balanced entry with great fruit offset by modest but adequate acidity and lovely tannins. The aftertaste is dry, fruity and warm. This could be the best showing of a Churchill port that I have had in a long time. 91/100.

Tasted at the Berry Brothers Port Walk on 26 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
