1998 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 21:27 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Brick red, wide transparent rim but an opaque centre. Fresh nose of slightly baked fruit, a touch of jamminess. Reluctant to deliver at first but the mid-palate is full and complex with delicious fruit and gentle tannins. Lovely lingering finish that is deliciously persistent. Very enjoyable. 88/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
