1948 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:32 Sun 14 Jun 2009

Opened as part of the Wokingham offline of 11 June 2009.

Ullaged to mid shoulder. Deep colour, more red than brown. Slightly farmyardy nose over a lovely clover honey. Very thick texture, lovely and lively in the mouth; full and flavoursome. A darned big port! The aftertaste is a little subdued, but very pleasant. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
