1970 Fonseca

Post by g-man » 16:14 Mon 30 Jul 2012

decanted for 2 hours before imbibing

A beautiful dark deep ruby color with no signs of bricking at all.

This was everything I was hoping the 77 would show.

A lovely all spice mixed with strawberry nose that shows a touch of licorice.

A full bodied wine showing vanilla, orange zest covered with a strawberry jam frame. The finish shows off some milk chocolate and turns warming, it lingers on for almost a full minute!

more please!

95.
