2013 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 21:28 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Modest purple in colour, with a distinct tone of red in the colour. Powerful nose of crushed nettles and dock leaves that absolutely leaps from the glass and is really attractive. On the palate this is sweet and full of dense and exuberant fruit. This has a very impressive palate with a wonderful combination of sweet, concentrated fruit and powerful tannins. A lovely tannic aftertaste that leads to a long and fragrant finish. Really impressive. 94-96/100. 06-May-15.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
