1996 Fonseca Guimaraens vintage port

Post by AHB » 08:45 Tue 03 May 2011

Solid red core, 90% opaque. Spirity nose with floral fruit. Lovely elegance of fruit, ripe and with chocolatey tannins. Lovely development in the mouth. Slightly hollow aftertaste but this changes to give a complex finish. Lovely wine, a decade from maturity. 88/100.
