1995 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by g-man » 02:12 Fri 10 Feb 2012

Decanted for 30 minutes

Dark opaque red with just the slightest hint of bricking around the rim.

lovely nose of freshly plucked strawberries and baked plums with a black licorice component

Smooth but very noticeable tannins gives way to cherry, raspberry compote and finishing strong with vanilla, oak, more tannins and a lovely throat feel that remind me of some of the finer whiskeys i've had.

impressive but very young
92.
