1975 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 10:54 Sun 29 Apr 2012

Firm red colour with a mahogany tone. Dusky nose, very attractive, full of dried dates and tobacco. Sweet entry, quite neutral; patience allows gentle currants and raisin flavours to develop with a sweet spiciness at the core. Very gentle but very enjoyable flavours. Very soft and gentle aftertaste, then a medium sized but long finish of ripe, sweet dates and concentrated mandarin. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
