Tasting notes

The 1985 vintage was a terrific vintage for Fonseca and it is currently in the stage of showing generous ripe fruit and lovely tertiary spice and earthy maturity. The reveals roasted plums, caramel hazelnuts, cinnamon, rich fruitcake and leathery spice. In the mouth it’s rich and palate-coating, yet graceful and almost restrained. This wonderful port will march on for another decade with ease. Careful decanting is advised.
