2011 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 08:43 Sun 18 Aug 2013

6,000 cases. Intense violet colour. Exuberant nose showing lots of fruit. Sweet fruit on entry but round tannins grab hold and don't let go. Less aggressive tannins than the Taylor. Dry tannins show on the finish, showing a lovely combination of fruit and cocoa. Fine port with a great elegance to the fruit and clearly with plenty of structure for the future. 94-96. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
