NV Fonseca Crusted 2007

Post by AHB » 23:10 Sun 29 May 2016

Brick red and mature, 90% opaque. A lovely nose, perfumed and lively. Sweet entry with ripe bramble fruit and toasted tannins delivering a great mouthful. Soft and mature on the palate. Sweet, slightly stewed red and black fruit that delivers a medium bodied impression. Gentle aftertaste with a long and delicious finish. 88 04-May-16
