2008 Fonseca's Quinta do Panascal

Post by AHB » 22:06 Mon 05 Jul 2010

Very little on the nose. Good texture, medium bodied but with tannins dominating everything although there is plenty of fruit on the palate. The aftertaste is dry, fruity and with some acid burn but leads to a glorious finish. 84-86/100. 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)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
