Fonseca Guimaraens 1987 Vintage Port (half)
Open 2 days and finally mellowed out, this was intense and quite sharp and in need of a chill and decant.
Nose and palate of ripe cherries, red licorice, milk chocolate, cinnamon sticks and caramel. A little heat, even with a chill, is still noticeable, but the rest of the wine has risen up to bring it back into more balance.

@quesyrahsera you were saying 1987? I forgot I also opened this on Saturday. @fonsecaport #port #dourovalley #guimaraens — 4 years ago
NV - After hours traffic congestion finally home... I need something comforting... to get pleasure back. This #20years old #port certainly does it: very expressive smell with dominant figs but also currants. Velvety taste, rather complex and long aftertaste. Good brand #cockburns — 3 years ago
Marinated mushroom magic. Grapes and raisins, cassis berry, skateboard bushing and candied violets inform an incredibly soft nose. A very blackberry and black currant reduction comes as a surprise bonus with charcoal, black pepper soaked in dry pencil wood and grape skin. This is solid and complex.The finish is endlessly complex vs the common fare. Unexpected from such value port. #port #porto #lbv #dows #portuguesewine #fortified #privateports — 4 years ago
