2011 Fonseca LBV

Post by AHB » 21:42 Mon 23 Oct 2017

Bottled unfiltered in 2016. Deep red in colour with a wide rim. A gentle nose of sour fruit. The slightly sour fruit appears amidst a big dose of tannins when the first sip is taken. This has mid-weight fruit and heavy-weight tannins that combine to give a nice chewiness to the finish. 83/100. 24-May-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Just bought a bottle from a local merchants for £14.99 - I'll give it a go this month sometime!

It's not bad, is it?

Would you mind if I split your tasting note apart from mine? The only reason I'd like to is that your note is based on a different bottle from the one that mine is based on. If we show it as two separate posts on the same wine, it shows up in the index as a second entry for that wine.
