1980 Fonseca

Post by g-man » 22:50 Tue 09 Mar 2010

Clear ruby red mixed with amber at the core with a very slight bricking around the edges.

Decanted and hour before dinner.

Sweet, light brown sugared nose that shows off some cinnamon and all spice spices. A slight spirit but integrates nicely with the spices.

Fully matured. Medium bodied, nutmeg, cranberries and some sweet strawberries coat the palate as it goes down. The sweet caramelized sugar lingers for a little but turns watery after 15 seconds.

A good port that can make a very decent no brainer on a tuesday night.
Drink now for sure.

89.
