Delaforce Quinta da Corte 1991 - just brilliant

Looking for a Port to drink now? Well, here's a fantastic Single Quinta Port that's from a superb vintage, and which is over-delivering by some margin.

Delaforce Quinta da Corte 1991 Douro, Portugal
This is a superbly complex Port that is drinking well now. Complex, warm, intense spicy nose is herby and aromatic. The palate is really smooth and elegant with lovely rich spicy complexity. Wonderful poise and elegance here. Top quality Port to drink now. 93/100 (17.99 Majestic, but 15.99 if you buy two bottles from 30/10/09 until 01/02/10)

Fully agree, these 1991 are drinking very nicely now - complex and integrated but for the most part still with some way to go.
Even the declared vintages are nicely approachable today. Graham's and especially Churchill's have been lovely of late.

Oh, and not meant to be a rant but it should Quinta "da" Crte and not "de la".

I believe it's Chuck Norris's favourite tipple too.
