2009 Fonseca Vintage Port (half bottle)
Grape Type: Port Blend
89(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May 2012
Full, deep, saturated ruby. The aromas of plum, cherry and licorice show an almost roasted ripeness. Large-scaled, superripe and verging on exotic; the wine's huge tannins are buffered by very sweet, deep black cherry and dark berry fruit flavors. I find this port a bit blurry compared to the vintage's best examples. Tasted three times, with similar results.
