Smith Woodhouse 1991

Release Notes

Only a very small quantity is expected to be bottled owing to the scarcity of the component wines.  Tasted fresh from cask after its second winter in wood the general comments on the wine were as follows:

All the right fruit and tannin for a very fine young Vintage Port and a firmness of structure suitable to ensure a long life.  Chocolate and ripe berry nose, the hallmarks of the classic Smith Woodhouse style.  Reminiscent of the 1983's when they were first released.

Most recently, impressively deep, opaque core; nose opened up richly in glass; good fruit, touch of leanness, good 'grip'.  3 Stars, should be 4 after further ageing.  2004-2015

Score: 4 Stars
