1985 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 23:16 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Brick red, 80% opaque. A lovely nose of blackcurrant cordial and fisherman's friends cough sweets. Delicious on the palate; smooth and with a great complexity. The tannins show late on the palate. It's lovely to leave this port on the palate and allow the flavours to come through. Spicy on the aftertaste and a burst of heat before a very long finish. This incredible port is just starting to hit its drinking window. 94/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
