1996 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AW77 » 16:35 Sat 04 Jan 2014

D+0h: a lot of deposit, smells intensively of sour cherry, D+6h: the colour is somewhat in the middle between dark as ink and purple, smells of violets and eucalyptus, full-bodied and not too sweet, violets in the mouth and in the aftertaste, quite a long finish (at least 30 seconds), more elegant than the '98 Panascal tasted the day before, quite good port, 90 P.
