1963 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:33 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deep cherry red in colour - and candied cherries on the nose and in the mouth. Still showing tannins. A bottle at its peak of maturity and showing very nicely. The aftertaste is spicy, big and enjoyable but fades a little too quickly to be ideal. Very fine, but not as good as most bottles. 86/100. Drunk 26 June 2009.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
