2000 Fonseca

Deep rose red with a brick red rim. Lovely fresh nose of sweet fruit syrup. A lovely shyness at first but with wonderful balance of fruit on the palate that is held in place by a delicate structure. This has a wonderful elegance and concentration. The elegance continues through to the aftertaste and finish. Elegant and delicious, like summer strawberries in the sun at Wimbledon. Drink now or in 20 years. 90/100. Drunk 03-Jun-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
