2012 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 15:50 Sun 08 Jun 2014

Deep red/purple in colour. Subdued nose compared to the Croft 2012 alongside, fresh and pleasant but not pronounced. Smooth velvet texture, the gentle fruit arrives at its own pace - but only just ahead of the massive tannins. A big palate presence, really big. delicious fruity finish and an immense length. Really tasty port. 92-94. 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
