Description

The 1980 Fonseca Vintage Port is rich ruby fading gently at the rim. Scents of spice, raisin and fruit cake. Soft, sweet and ever so slightly plump. Rich and rounded. Flavours of chocolate, spice and Christmas cake.

Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. It excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavours. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wines, but I always find myself upgrading my opinion of Fonseca after it has had 7-10 years of age. The 1980 is very good, possibly excellent". Robert Parker, Wine Buying Guide 1989 Parker
