2008 Fonseca Quinta do Panascal

Post by DRT » 08:43 Sat 07 Aug 2010

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

A beautiful floral nose. Thick and chewy texture with dark chocolate and raspberry, good acidity and dry tannins. Although all of the components feel big and bold there is nothing aggressive about this wine. It is very elegant, refined and perfectly balanced. 93 points.
