1960 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:53 Mon 13 May 2013

Red core, firm rim; 50% opaque. Restrained with little on the nose. Just some vague rhubarb. Sweet fruit, balanced but with a slight lack of acidity. Good components but less depth than the 1963 shown alongside. Pleasant aftertaste. A little flabby and lacking in focus. 88/100. Drunk 23 April 2013 with a 6 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
