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 Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
