1977 Fonseca


Impressions, please.


Haven't had it for a while but needs a long decant and is best served at cellar temp, IMHO!


bmam, my friend, I will do as you suggest! "Long" meaning what, by the way. Come on down and partake!

I expect that G-man has more experience than me with this wine so hopefully he will chime in. But for my part, at least 4 hours in an open decanter, though I tend to decant ports in the morning and if I can, taste them every few hours to see how they are doing. When they hit the sweet spot, I cover the decanter with plastic wrap. And I put the decanter in the fridge an hour before drinking.

As for joining you, I'd love to but mrs bman is busy with Christmas preparations!

ya i agree with the same, especially since it's the 77' vintage. bottle variation is a pain.

Thank you both!
- (2) 1995 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve

Fingers crossed for these at X-mas dinner, as the last few bottles I've tried have been spectacular. A bonus, as I get to hear my Dad make comparisons to his revered Bogle Petite Sirah.

I think it's my Dad's requirement to give me shit about everything. IE, his version of family "bonding." Wouldn't have it any other way. Big Grin

Nice! From Acker Auction? Wink


Nope. Private cellar pick up about ten years ago

Even better!

Sadly, I've had this wine twice and it was DOA.

Too bad you didn't get yours from Acker. I would predict it would be drinking like it was a 1990s Bordeaux. Razz


90s cali you mean.

sides, if i wanted any more 90s cali dressed up as fake wines, i'd just hit up your cellar =)

drinking surprisingly well.

Iron shavings, hints of dried blood when initially opened. After some time in the glass, it opened up with some cranberry fruit, dried earth.

On the palate was notes of red berries backed with some sweet tea, that they forgot to add the sugar, notes.

This acutally held up for a good majority of the dinner.

definitely pleasant to drink.
