Fonseca Porto Vintage 1985

Deep inky ruby with a broad red rim. Generous and seductive nose redolent of blackcurrant, cherry and ground coffee. e full round palate is supported by thick well integrated tannins and delivers an abundance of luscious chocolate and blackcurrant flavour which lingers into the long velvety _ nish. A wine poised between youth and maturity.
