1966 Fonseca

What a lovely nose of freshly ground cloves and cinnamon with a lovely hint of cardamom

This is silky smooth on the body filled lush spiced plums, orange marmalade and reduced black cherries
Touch of ginseng root on the finish that just lingers for over a minute!

Refined balance yet showing great depth

A fantastic mature port
