NV Fonseca 20 year tawny

Post by Andy Velebil » 23:34 Sun 02 Sep 2007

Ok, finally got some time to catch up on writing some TN's. This is from a few weeks ago.

The color is a golden orange with a redish tint and looks more like it is on the older side of a 20 year blend. Don't know the actual overall average age, but I would bet it's a bit older average than most. The nose has some great spice, carmel, and hints of oak that are prominent. The complex palate of spicy pepper, toffee, a touch of tannins, and wood fill the mouth with instant pleasure. A long finish rounds out a very solid 20 year. 93 point.
