1948 Fonseca

Post by jdaw1 » 21:35 Wed 06 Jun 2018

An ‘Eights’ tasting, to be the second or fourth digit of the vintage, arranged by Tony, who provided many of the bottles including an 1867. And Alex provided Graham 1897.

F48. Dark red, 40% opaque. Unctuous, rich and soft. Lighter than perfect, but delicious and lovely. Early evening I preferred this to the T48, slightly, but within an hour the Fonseca was the junior of the two.

35% opacity, red brown, cloudy with sediment. Smooth entry then quick to a hot finish, hints of strawberry, sweetness. Some acidity and sharpness but overall a bit flabby.
