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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
