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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
