2008 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 22:03 Mon 05 Jul 2010

Stewed red fruit on the nose, with a slight tinge of bitters to the fragrance. Nice texture in the mouth, very floral flavours with the sweet red fruit. Quite light bodied, but with plenty of dry and grippy tannins. The finesse follows through on the finish, which is long and fruity with dry, stalky tannins. 86-88/100. Finnesse and elegance in a glass. 5 July 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)
