Fonseca, Guimaraens, Port, Douro, Portugal 1998

One of those ‘nearly there’ Port vintages, with hopes of a good growing season dashed
by last-minute rain: still restrained on the nose, with liquorice-like richness beneath; opulent, broad and sweet with fresh berry fruit and a touch of dark chocolate and spicy, peppery tannins on the finish.
