Fonseca Porto Bin No 27
2 weeks ago, DDF opened the Fonseco Porto Bin No 27. We got it, I think, for about $20. I didn't like it at all when it was opened: strong overwhelming flavors of Robitussin Cherry Cough Syrup, solvent-like after taste. And it of course, induced the traditional headache in the cranium of my beloved scientist wife after a tiny, 4 ounce glass. "We can cook with it maybe" I thought, and put it in the fridge.
2 or 3 days later, I was looking for something to have a night cap before bed, and I tried a sip with some trepidation. I was amazed, to find that chilled, and 3 days older, it actually tasted quite good. I can't really recommend it as an awesome Port, but it was drinkable, and over the next week we did not have to pour it down the drain.
