1985 Fonseca: just like Fonseca 1985. Purple red, nose and taste of stewed young plums, and just too young. Huge. Wait!

Interesting that the lodge tastes from US-labelled bottles (Kobrand Corporation).

So instead look at this picture of twenty-seven Imperials (six litres, eight-bottle bottles) of Fonseca 1985. (Death to silly IVDP regulations!)

Explain? Are they not allowed to sell Imperials or something?
