2001 Fonseca Guimaraens Panascal

Post by g-man » 03:52 Fri 16 Aug 2013

Popped and poured

Dark purple. No signs of age

Meaty nose with earthy spices. Cumin mixed with sasspirilla blended with spirits prunes

Lush full mouthfeel with crushed black peppers , dark cherry cola syrup finishing of bitter dark chocolate liquor

A very young powerhouse

Day 2

sweet baked plums with a hint of violets

lovely spiced mouthfeel of fresh ground cinnamon much better integration with the spirits, that cola syrup still lurks around and finishing the same with that dark chocolate liquor
