1980 Fonseca

Post by KillerB » 10:51 Thu 21 Jun 2007

Bought from the cellars at the Crusting Pipe, I have a bottle at home.

Basically this isn't like Fonseca. It's far too light for such a young one and I could get no flowers, but could get the coffee at the back. It's not that this is bad Port, it's just not Fonseca-ish. Drinking very well now, probably at its best, it is very enjoyable. A Port that you would enjoy of a night and completely forget what it was like two days later when you are writing tasting notes from your head.
