fonseca 20 yr old porto tawny
The NV 20 Year Old Tawny was bottled with a bar top cork in . It comes in at 111.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. A big mouthful, this is a 20 that first coats the palate and then ends with silky texture and concentrated flavor. Very graceful, it is not as impressive in terms of mid-palate density, but it is more than respectable. It shows fine complexity, appropriate to its age category. The finish seals the deal, more lingering and gripping than I expected from the first taste. It is another delicious Tawny from the Taylor Fladgate group this issue, so dig in.
Very spicy, with clove, maple, and ginger cream flavors leading the way. There's a smoky essence to the dark cherry and baked apricot notes, which power through to the finish. Drink now. –KM
