1970 Fonseca

Post by g-man » 02:06 Mon 21 May 2012

Popped and decanted for 5 hours prior to drinking

Dark cherry red on the color 80-90% opaque.

A strawberry liquor nose like one that was just freshly opened.

On the palate, sweet red cranberries with some strawberries with a fantastic spicy medium/full bodied that integrates perfectly with its spirits. The spirits are noticeable and lends itself to a freshly ground black pepper note.
The finish lingers on with some sugar, cedar, anise and freshly ground cinnamon.

Fantastic specimen of port.

96/100
