1985 Fonseca

Post by g-man » 15:04 Sat 29 May 2010

Popped with 2 hours of decanting as the groom was very generous in opening a bottle for me.

This is a full bodied monster showing no signs of age at all.

The tannins were noticeable as was the plums, cinnamon, anise and some fine sweet tobacco.
It finishes with lingering and palate coating flavors of condensed milk and cedar.

Never ceases to amaze.

Because this is still so young, I'll use uncle tom's rating scale. 9-10
