1992 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:55 Mon 13 May 2013

Deep red centre, firm rim. Faint fruit on the nose, but very restrained. Soft fruit on the palate, showing a mix of youth and maturity. Starting to soften with age. The tannins are ripe and rounded, showing lots of promise for the future. A lovely elegance. Hot aftertaste with dry fruit on the finish. Not clear where this will end up with another 10-20 years. 86/100. Drunk 23 April 2013 with a 6 hour decant.
