1977 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 18:02 Sat 29 May 2010

Looking in colour to be in the early stages of maturity. Mature nose, open and full of maraschino cherry. Sweet and a little simple in the mouth, with candied fruit but no tannins. Very sweet. Soft and lingering aftertaste, although a little short. A port to drink and enjoy over the next 10 years. 90/100. Drunk 26 May 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
