1994 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 22:03 Wed 21 May 2014

Dark centre, some bricking on the rim. Very similar in colour to the Taylor but with an opaque centre. An attractive nose of red licorice and soaked prunes. A lovely satin texture on the palate, gentle but dense fruit all ove the palate but with ripe tannins sitting firmly under the fruit. The fruit persists and holds, ripe and mature and very fine. Fruit driven aftertaste and a long fruity finish that lasts well over 2 minutes! An absolute wonder of a port. 97/100. Drunk 14-May-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
