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

Pleasant stuff with opulent fruit and well judged acidity. Caressing tannins frame richness, sexiness and pure, crushed fruitiness.

Nice but clearly the second runner up out of the three.

Fun and fruity nose, but smell of ethanol might overpower. Interesting on the mouth with leathery and raisin notes. Hotness still overpowers
