92 Points James Halliday
Medium to full red-purple; complex, solid and rich with hints of chocolate and mint. Strongly flavoured and structured palate with chocolate and berry fruit flavours, potent tannins, and overall slightly less opulently sweet than the '90. Drink to 2008.

"In terms of flavour this isn’t as good as the 1990 (which is fresher) but in terms of structure, give me this one. I’ve always been a 1991 fan.
"Raisiny. Minty. Savoury – more developed than the 1990. Lovely fleshy appeal, lovely fine tannins spreading out through the wine. In many ways a typical 1991 – all tannin, elegance, natural complexity and (now) development. Minor signs of chocolatey oak but at full maturity now.
Rated : 90 Points
