1991 Port Vintage Report

Declared as a Vintage by some producers, the first since 1985. The 1991 was a very small but good Vintage; the grapes tended to be small with little juice resulting in deep, dense powerful wines for the medium to long term. It was declared by the Symington-owned houses (Dow, Graham, Warre, Smith Woodhouse, Gould Campbell, Quarles Harris) while Taylor and Fonseca declared Single Quinta wines. Both the declared Vintage Ports and the Single Quinta wines would make a great 28 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary celebration.

Niepoort Port, 1991

Vintage Port (Half Bottle)

The bouquet offers a blend of black cherries, damp earth, molasses intermingled with bitter chocolate, a touch of tobacco and tarmac. The mouthfeel was quite supple and light in texture, but showed nice balance and overall harmony.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1991

Vintage Port

Rich ruby color that is nearly opaque. It presents notes of strawberry, molasses and others mentioned root beer which I did not really get, but thought was worth noting. This Nacional displays excellent concentration and structure, with medium to full-bodied juice. It possesses young blackberry fruit with a unique balsamic component, and shows its fine balance and some powerful tannins that will allow this wine to age for a few decades. A fine Nacional but not a classic, from an unheralded vintage that has a very youthful essence and lingering finish. 93 pts. (HOLD) Roy Hersh

Warre's Vintage Port, 1991

Vintage Port

Heavy rain at the start of the year were able to support the vines through the dry spring and very hot summer. The grapes achieved perfect ripeness with high levels of sugar. This wine is very aromatic with black cherry, plum, dark chocolate and suede notes. A very silky texture with rich chocolate flavours, licorice, cloves, and lots of plum. The tannins are soft and integrated and there is a very long, delicious finish. Definitely a beauty!
