Mid November and one's thoughts turn to port.
Christmas without a vintage port? You must be having a laugh...

These six come from a previously unopened case of 12 and are in pristine condition in every respect. They are offered individually on a 'BUY IT NOW' basis.

This wine scores heavily with those that write about such things :

92 points Wine Spectator
Perfumed and gorgeous, with flowers, berry and plum. Full-bodied, very sweet and round, with lovely rich fruit and a long finish. A tiny bit of heat, but will come around nicely. Very pretty indeed. Hard not to swallow now. (JS) (5/2005)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The firmly-structured, moderately tannic, impressively colored and concentrated 1991 Vintage Port is less precocious and more reserved than the 1992 Quinta do Bomfim Vintage Port. It may develop along the lines of the stern but powerful 1977. The wine offers a classic display of black fruits, licorice, and chocolate aromas and flavors, as well as a full-bodied, muscular style with considerable tannin and firmness. Give it 10-12 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 30+. (RP) (2/1995)

Jancis Robinson
Crimson with a bit of age at the rim. Warm and pruney with definite evolution, Not unattractive. Sweet red wine with marked acidity for a port. Lively, a very particular style. (10/2004)
