1970 Fonseca: colour I wrote only ‟same as always”. Fairly opaque, dark red, no purple, no brown. As made by god. Nose had a cloves originally misidentified by me as menthol. Eric D’s friend Eric T said ‟moss after July rain”. AJRH differed, insisting on August rain; I suggested late June. To taste full-on sweetness, heat briefly mid-palate, then sweet sticky great length. Very long. Lovely.
1970 Fonseca: Color a nice clear ruddy hue. The nose had a good deal of floral (rose) and spicy components to it (cloves and caraway). The spice followed through on the palate with flavors of root beer/sassafrass/sarsaparilla. A very long finish with brown sugar and just a hint of smokiness. Absolutely top-notch.
