1996 Fonseca Guimaraens vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:26 Fri 10 May 2013

Deep red, firm rim, looking much less evolved than the '98 Panascal being shown alongside. The nose is full of menthol. Restrained on entry, very spicy with plenty of mid-palate fruit. Turns out to be a powerful port, long and fine. 87/100. Drunk 24 April 2013 at the BFT.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
