The basis of Fonseca's vintage port in declared years, this voluptuous, concentrated wine marries velvety blackstrap fruit and spice with a ripe tannic underpinning, ending in a lavishly persistent finish.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Elegant, with good grip to the dark cherry, plum and minerally flavors. Lithe midpalate, featuring a complex finish that weaves together well-proportioned notes of slate, white pepper and dark chocolate. Drink now through 2035. 300 cases imported.
