1970 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 22:07 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Deep red in colour, a lovely mature red, 70% opaque. Very lively and spicy nose, lots of spice and some sweet, attractive fruit. Poised and balanced entry; generous levels of ripe fruit over a firm tannic and woody core. Lovely layering and complexity. Slightly sticky finish, big and powerful. Very long, very very fine. A powerful port that will be better in the future. 93/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Decanted 29 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
