1994 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 23:48 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Deep red and intense in colour, opaque. A floral nose with lots of perfume, very attractive. Soft, round and sweet fruit on the palate. Tannins arrive eventually and deliver some support and zing to the big, round and sweet fruit. A quick flash of heat then a massive fruit driven finish. I was so engrossed by this port I forgot to score it but it was exceedingly good! NR. Drunk 25-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
