1983 Fonseca

Post by Axel P » 17:23 Thu 19 Mar 2009

Very dark red with nice reflections.

The nose was initially closed, but after about 4 hours breathing this wine showed a very nice chocolat-raspberry flavour.
Palate almost fully integrated with a very good fruit and some mint spices. Nice aftertaste.

Not a blockbuster, but very nice drinkable today for an affordable price.

Whats not to like? 17/20

Even 24h in the decanter do not harm this wine. Very integrated. Better than yesterday.

A very good wine to toast to the newborn Wiseman. To you and your family, Julian!
