1977 Fonseca Vintage Port

Post by g-man » 21:06 Sat 31 Jan 2009

Leaking bottle so popped and poured.

Every bit the amazing wine it is.

No bricking around the rim but a nice ruby with a very slight browning on the body.

Very floral nose of caramel, sweet roses, hint of lavendar. This is soo intoxicating, I can sniff all night.

The flavor is slightly muted, light milk chocolate, backed by toffee mixed with strawberries, that finishes with allspice red berries, plums. Spicy toffee finish that lasts 45 seconds.

For a leaky bottle, I LOVE this.

97.

10-10
