Description

A very rare outstanding 6 litre bottle of 2009 vintage Port Wine from Fonseca.
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 gum cistus. 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.

Reviews:
"Spicy, dense fruit with an iron spine behind the richness, energy and sweetness in Fonseca’s robust style, (drink) 2019 -2039, 19 points." - Steven Spurrier, Decanter. August 2011

"The Fonseca 2009 has a very ripe sweet prune and fig-tinged bouquet that is very precocious. Score 93." - Neal Martin, www.erobertparker.com, May 2011

"Smooth, ripe, aromatic nose is lush and rich, with ripe – almost creamy – blackcurrant and raspberry fruit. 94–96/100" - Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, May 2011
