Fonseca Port, 1997

Vintage Port MAGNUM (1.5 L)

*** 93 Points Robert Parker ***

Deep inky ruby with a broad red rim just turning to brick at the edge. Generous and seductive nose redolent of blackcurrant and cherry. Dense, luscious black fruit laced with dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted coffee. Exotic herbal and resiny scents emerge an hour after decanting. Later the fruit becomes more luscious and creamier, with rich raspberry jam flavours overlaying the dark fruity base. The full round palate is supported by thick well-integrated tannins and delivers an abundance of luscious chocolate and blackcurrant flavour which lingers into the long velvety finish.

Vintage Port

A classy Port, full-bodied and brimming with fruit flavour and silky, fine tannins that kick in on the finish. A subtle wine that takes you by surprise.

Quinta do Passadouro, 1997

Quinta do Passadouro, Vintage Port

"The 1997 is an elegant Port, though having some good depth. Its tannins were melted and some secondary flavours were already starting to show, the fruit was chaging from ripe plums to candied figs. It is reaching its 2nd plateau of maturity.
Passadouro is an early drinker but this 1997 is one of the good port wines they made in the 90's.

1996 Fonseca Port

Guimaraens Single Quinta Vintage Port (Price includes a solid oak gift box with silk liner as illustrated)

Tasting note:
Complex and elegant bottle matured bouquet. Plum and cherry fruit with spicy, aromatic background. Lean, stylish wine with good structure. Fresh, firm finish that holds well.
Reviews
"It is not without reason that Fonseca is described as the Margaux of the Douro; its wines have a femininity and grace that never flatter to deceive. The 1996 Single Quinta is a perfect example; combining fresh aromatics and layers of berry fruit flavours with a firm but unobtrusive tannic structure. Enormously concentrated, and perfectly balanced this wine is archetypical Fonseca." Parker, buyers Guide.

Barros Port, 1996

Colheita Port

Vivid golden colour. Rich and elegant nose, combining the dried fruits aromas with the aromatic wood notes. Soft and silky in the taste, full with ripe figs and sweet flavours. A sensation of depth, in an elegant and distinctive style. Perfect and overwhelming finish.

Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer. Lighter and more delicate than vintage ports,

Blandys Madeira, 1996

Malmsey Colheita Madeira

Blandys Colheita Madeira is aged in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company’s south-facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks are transferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine is regularly racked during the ageing process and is finally bottled when the desired balance of maturity is reached. Blandys 1996 Malmsey Colheita Madeira 50cl is 100% Bual and is a medium rich style of Madeira.

Chateau Certan-de-may, 1996

Pomerol

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Moderately saturated medium red. Somewhat riper aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, smoke, tar, tobacco and pepper, plus a hint of green coffee beans. More intensely flavored and vinous than the '97; in a rather fruity style but a wine of modest sweetness. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins and more length than the '97, but still betrays a slight greenness. (ST) (5/1998)

Chateau Grand Pontet, 1996

St Emilion

90-91 points outstanding - Robert Parker

"This up and coming St.-Emilion is somewhat under-rated given the consistently high quality of recent vintages. The 1996 is a flamboyant, dark ruby/purple-colored wine with a soaring bouquet of plum liqueur, toasty new oak, black cherries, smoke, and dried herbs. In the mouth, evidence of sur-maturite jamminess and richness emerge from this medium-bodied, rich, spicy, impressively-endowed wine. There is tannin in the medium to full-bodied finish." - RP

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

*** 93/100 - Robert Parker ***
The 1996 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color that is just beginning to lighten at the edge, surprisingly velvety tannins and a classic Pauillac bouquet of lead pencil shavings, cedarwood, black currants, sweet cherries and spice box. This medium to full-bodied, elegant, savory, broad wine is still five years away from full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years.

The 1996 Chateau Marbuzet has a dark ruby colour. Iron, game and deep red fruits fill the nose with exciting aromas.

A bit of lavender makes its way into things after being exposed to air for 60 minutes.

This estate has been rejuvenated thanks to the inspired leadership of Gerard Perse and it has never produced better wines. The 1996 has quantities of redcurrant fruit in the nose, along with earth and spice. This is a pleasant wine that is in its prime now and so will gain no benefit from additional cellaring.
