1963 Fonseca vintage port

Post by TLW » 03:17 Sun 17 Mar 2013

Two hours after decanting, browning around the edges. Slightly dusty at first, rish, spicy (Fonseca always makes me sneeze), butterscoth and raisins. Very long finish - the wine of the night.

A day later - comparable to a 1966 Fonseca, a friend said, "chocolate covered cherries and tobacco". Years still to go - port as it should be - magnificent.
