Tremendous #Port #wine. Rich & Powerful, balanced in all facets.
Hits with strong stewed red cherry, cherry licorice. Intense. Quickly finishes light, gliding, silky finish. Clean. Superb integration. Dark ruby color. Paired with Chocolate cake, in a white choc shell. Raspberry sauce, & port wine ice cream and raspberries. Opened 2/28/17 — a year 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 — 3 months ago
Dark berry in the forefront on both aroma and taste. Nice depth of flavor, balanced acidity with a hint of vanilla, a touch of zippy spice and nearly tannin-free finish. It's a blend with the Tinta Roriz #port grape which brings the dark dried berry richness. There's quite a lot of interesting layers in this young #portuguese red. — a year ago
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 — 9 months ago
Med + concentration with a light purple core and a brownish rim. The nose was young with med + intensity and complexity. The fruit was driven by stewed and dried black fruit accompanied by sweet spices, nuts, chocolate, and orange. Tannins were present along with low acid and balanced alcohol. The #port felt young and well concentrated. There was more red fruit along with a floral component on the palate. Great length. #dows #vintageport #portugal #oporto #touriganacional #ctbucklinwine — a year ago
