2005 Fonseca LBV (unfiltered)

Found this for £10.99 up in Windemere while in holiday and was sacrificed accordingly. A dense dark red colour almost opaque and cloudy despite a 24 hour vertical stance. Initially this started off full of fruit, cherries predominant. Very tasty. However there was a surprising amount of cedar. I wouldn't have thought this wine saw much oak? Within a few hours the cedar turned resinous in character. Pine resin added interest no doubt yet the increase in interest did not compensate for the loss in pleasure. Moved from Very Good down to Agreeable. Quite a surprising wine.
