2000 Fonseca

More red in colour than the Taylor 2000 shown alongside, less bricking and with a wide transparetn rim. Closed on the nose, showing little - perhaps some fresh grass over blueberry fruit. Candied cherry and powerful tannin on the palate. Great presence and a good balance. A scrumptious aftertaste and a fabulous finish. A real gem of a port; very fine. 93/100. Drunk 14-May-14
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
