I’m not sure they didn’t accidentally fill this bottle with ruby port. Seriously. Light and cloyingly sweet. Lacks the development Expected from a vintage port of this caliber

Still tastes young at 31 yrs. I always like tawny better though.

Sweet Fonseca nose, nicely balanced spirit, a tad tannic, medium-long finish, but we just love Fonseca, and this is quite fine!!

A rich, deeply flavored port. I thought there was a midpalate cardboardy note, but the pros present didn't think it was corked.

Medium sweet, balanced acidity. Long finish and full bodied. Red and black cherries with a touch of spice.

Solid '83, but either I didn't decant early enough (7 hours ago) or it's still too young and unbalanced, as the spirits really stand out. Fonseca is usually my favorite house, so in that context, a little disappointing.
