1966 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:33 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Soft red in colour, showing perfect maturity. Softly hot on the nose with sweet plum jam although more subdued than would be expected. Lovely and silky in the mouth. Lots of fruit in the palate and plenty of subtleties. Surprisingly tannic and quite big. Huge aftertaste. A big and very fine wine. 93/100. 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
