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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
