1984 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 21:26 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Medium red, mature appearance; 40% opaque. A lovely nose of mature port with sweet and spicy cranberry and redcurrants dominating. There is a delicious balance on the palate, which is big and flavoursome and leads to a fabulous mid-palate that has a really nice balance. Very hot on the aftertaste, with the heat settling slowly and eventually releases a long and fine finish. 88/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
