1994 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 22:08 Fri 14 Nov 2014

The bottle from Panascal was not finished on the day, with some being taken to O Paparico to share with Glenn Eliott. Dark red, intense and opaque. Delightful perfumed nose, lovely tones and complexity. Gorgeous texture, really smooth like Egyptian cotton. Concentrated fruit, fragrant cherry and powerful tannins. Massive palate presence, hugely punishing. A massive finish, big and powerful. Complex and fabulous port that will become a legend. 97/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Decanted 36 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
