1998 Fonseca Guimaraens Panascal

Post by AHB » 22:44 Sun 25 May 2014

Mature red in appearance; 70% opaque. Syrupy stewed fruit on the nose. Simple on entry, with gentle tannins and restrained fruit that improves and develops but not giving an impression of being well balanced; comes with a dry edge to the palate. Big on the finish. The overall impression is of an unbalanced port that has cellar potential. 86/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
