Three Vintages of Fonseca Port Presented in Wooden presentation box with a History of Fonseca Hardback Book

2000 Fonseca Vintage Port
T*** 95 Points Robert Parker *** *** 95 Points Wine Journal *** "Dense ruby/purple-coloured, with an exotic, exuberant perfume of black fruits, flowers, incense, and licorice, this unctuously-textured, full-bodied port is one of the most concentrated of the vintage. Sweet, expansive, and succulent, this large-scaled, but remarkably well-balanced effort is surprisingly forward and accessible (by Fonseca's standards). Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2002.

2003 Fonseca Vintage Port
rom the outstanding 2003 vintage and scoring 95+ points. "Wild aromas, with flowers, blackberries and passion fruit. Full-bodied, massive on the palate. Medium-sweet. The finish goes on for minutes. A mega young Port. Fonseca. What do you expect?." 95-100/100 points. (James Suckling - Wine Spectator - Apr-05)

Review:
Restrained on the nose, with licorice-like richness beneath; opulent, broad and sweet with fresh berry fruit and a touch of dark chocolate and spicy, peppery tannins on the finish.


2009 Fonseca Vintage Port
Impenetrable black colour. A classic Fonseca nose dominated by an exuberant, hedonistic fruitiness, a powerful redolence of dark dense blackberry and blackcurrant which slowly releases a heady mix of spicy and herbal aromas, seductive notes of coffee and cocoa, hints of prune and wild scents of gumcistus. The thick velvety tannins give the wine a voluptuous density, integrating effortlessly with the sumptuous infusion of blackberry jam, dark chocolate and liquorice, which coats the palate. The tannins are also present on the finish which brims with blackberry and blackcurrant flavour.
