1985 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 23:47 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Deep red colour, opaque and solid. An intense nose that is tight and closed. On the palate this delivers warm, sweet fruit that has a lovely density. Strong tannins, but the sweet fruit dominates. The aftertaste is warm with a touch of greeness to the tannins before the dry fruit finish. Still so dense and tight, this is great youthful port. 94/100. Drunk 25-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
