2009 Fonseca LBV

Post by AHB » 23:12 Sun 29 May 2016

Unfiltered and unfined. Deep red with a touch of brick and a medium rim. Subdued nose giving a hint of ripe fruit. Ripe but restrained fruit on entry; modest fruit and modest tannins. Gentle fruit aftertaste. A soft port and modest LBV. 87 04-May-16
