Somewhat of a lightweight for Fonseca, but undeniably charming, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine offers a floral, exotic, flamboyant bouquet, a sweet, fleshy style, but not a great deal of weight or massiveness. Heady alcohol, sweet tannin, and a velvety texture make for a gorgeous finish. While I would have preferred to have seen more weight, structure, and intensity, this is an outstanding, albeit lighter than normal Fonseca. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.

Worth the wait Port full fruit soft and polish on the end great with pears and Stilton
Had with Colsten Basset Stilton and a roaring fire, highly recommended - deep cherry and Wood
Very tasty my first experience of port liked it a hell of a lot!
