2008 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by DRT » 08:42 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

Extremely dark. Wood smoke and dark cherry on the nose. Good thick texture with dark, brooding blackcurrant fruit. A big wine with an excellent structure that really fills the mouth. Very well balanced with a very long, sweet mouthwatering finish. Excellent. 94 points.
