The superb 1991 Cask 23 Proprietary Red Wine appears to be one of the truly outstanding examples of this expensive proprietary red wine. The wine's saturated dark purple color is followed by a huge, unevolved but sexy nose of toasty new oak, dense, black-cherry and jammy cassis fruit, and vague scents of underbrush and spice. Extremely rich and concentrated, it offers intriguing blackcurrant and coffee flavors, full body, remarkable harmony, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. (RP)
There is a slight herbal, vegetal intrusion in this wine as well, but the fruit is deeper, the structure is tighter and the ripe and rich flavors push a bit harder. While one might worry about how it will change from here on out, it looks certain to keep itself on track for another half decade or more, and its structure will go further than that. This one stays in our cellar based on potential for further growth.
Smells complex and keeps introducing new flavor nuances, with an array of stewed plum, coffee, currant, black olive, roasted pine nut, red plum and red licorice. Shows a mix of youthful and mature flavors. (JL, Web-2002)
