2000 Fonseca Vintage Port

Post by DRT » 22:22 Fri 22 Jun 2007

Black as coal with a huge burst of raspberry on the nose. The tears on the glass are thick and red. This is a huge fruit bomb but I have a feeling it is about to go the same way as the 85 and close down for a while. I just can't help thinking that it's a sin to drink this for the next 20/30 years. It deserves time to grow up.

I thought that it had already closed. I found the tannins too hard to get through. Yes, wildly young and out of control.
