Peter Maude Fine Wines

1994, Fonseca Vintage Port,  PORTUGAL

$475

Bordeaux Blend: Touriga Nacional.

The first bottle was slightly oxidised, but the second was much better: it's very deep in colour, with a restrained, underlying fruit nose, brooding yet ripe: not giving away much. Soft and ripe initially with big structured tannins building in the mouth, and leading to a massive peacock’s tail of a finish. Still not showing to its full potential; needs five more years in bottle and will be very fine. 96/100 Richard Mayson, Decanter. 

Drinking Window: 2029 - 2050.
