In a bottle of Fonseca 1963 was a question rather than a certain answer:

Recognising that this scientific question needed scientific experiment, a round dozen of us gathered to test some 1963s.

Fruit thinning slightly, but plenty of backbone/grip and improving as the evening progressed. My 3rd place for voting.

30% opacity, red. Smooth, rich mouthfeel, nicely balanced, mature red fruit in the mouth. Very pleasant to drink and certainly not a weakling by any stretch in the company of the others on the evening. I gave it half a point alongside the G63!

Cn63: glorious red, 50% opaque. Bright maraschino cherry. Fruit strong, mid-weight. WPS noticed “some VA”—I didn’t.
