NV Fonseca Bin 27

Post by AHB » 15:47 Sun 08 Jun 2014

Deep red and opaque. Restrained nose. Pronounced soft tannins wrapped around sweet purple fruit - more grown up than the Taylor First Estate. Gentle fruit and nutskin aftertaste and a big, chewy and very fine finish. This could be cellared for 2-3 years. 86/100. Drunk 03-Jun-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
