A weaker fonseca with the fruit, smooth tannins, slightly spirity, this is a dryer fonseca. Christmas cake soaked in rum is a good description.

89 pts.

T+48 (last glass) -
You know, this is interesting, reminds me of light almond sweet crumbly egg cookies on the nose. No spirits at all anymore.
Very thin on the palate, this has fallen apart on the body. Flavors of prunes, dried figs, and a slight acidic bite on the tongue.
