1998 Fonseca Guimaraens Panascal

Post by AHB » 23:38 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Brick red colour with a 90% opaque centre. Smelly on the nose, quite remarkably so. Dry fruit entry with a dry core that has hints of greenness. A powerful acidity cuts through the flavours, which are light on fruit. The finish is peppery and of huge volume with lots of molasses at the end of the finish. 84/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
