Fonseca 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

Fonseca is one of the great port houses, yielding the most hedonistic andcomplex vintage style. It may lack the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dowor Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, but it excels inits magnificently complex, intense bouquet of figs, plums, black cherry fruitand sweet spices...and the best part is saved for last; an extremely longfinish, that coats the palate. With its lush, seductive character, it is dubbedthe Pomerol of Vintage ports.

93 Points "Very dark and youthful ruby-purple. Very intense aromas of blackberry and black licorice. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with chewy tannins and a rich licorice, blackberry undertone. Still tight. Drinkable now, but it needs a few more years. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Best after 2010." Wine Spectator

In der Nase der duft von reifendem Port, im Gaumen eine drückende Struktur mit einem creamigen Charakter.
