NV Fonseca Crusted 2008 (Bicentenary edition)

Post by AHB » 23:17 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Deep red with some youth still showing on the rim. Delightful floral nose, elegant and lifting. A lovely texture, so smooth; sweet fruit with a great balance, the gentle tannins surround a sharp acidity. The combination gives a delicious palate that is full of chocolate, paprika and blackberries. Blackberries dominate the aftertaste and the long chewy finish. 89/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
