1984 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 23:52 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Mature red in colour, 50% opaque. Gentle candied fruit on the nose and a nicely balanced fruit-led entry. Medium weight with soft spicy fruit and very gentle tannins. A lovely lengthy finish of jellied fruit. Rather lovely. 90/100. 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
