2008 Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port 2008 with free port funnel

2008 Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port 2008 with free port funnel

Ref: 28553

From the very good 2008 vintage, this stunning vintage port scored 93/100 Parker points " It comes in with 97.4 grams of sugar and 20.3% alcohol. This is pretty intense. Tight and tannic still, this is a very focused Port with fine intensity of flavor and powerful aromatics. There's a bit of cistus up front for the aromatics and a bit of a crisp edge on the finish. The fruit is certainly ripe, though, even though the mid-palate is elegant. This intense 2008 is not ready. For all of the trend toward drinking Port young, I'd say this needs around 10 more years in the cellar, depending on how you like them. (Then, if you really want complexity, you might wait until 2035 or beyond.) All that said, it drank pretty well when I tried it again 24 hours later. This is a fine selection for the cellar at a pretty nice price for a Port that is already 10 years into its aging curve." Drink now - 2060. A great anniversary gift. Includes free port funnel.

This vintage port is shipped in its original deluxe wooden presentation box at no extra cost and now includes a free gift card with your personal message and tasting and storage notes.
