Fonseca 2000 Vintage Port
The 2000 Fonseca exude finesse and focus on the nose, with pure blackberry, juniper berries, licorice and a touch of sloes, with a palate underpinned by very fine tannins, a sensual, svelte texture with wonderful acidity. The harmony and symmetry is alluring, the finish precise and demonstrating the persistency to suggest a long future ahead. Drink 2020-2060". Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.
"The millennial Fonseca is still a young pup. It has rich blackberry, cassis and liquorice-scented nose with a touch of saddle-leather, fruitcake and earth. The palate has sensuous entry, beautifully integrated tannins, seamless and caressing with blackberry, black olive compote, fig and a touch of damson jam. Lovely sense of natural balance and poise but yet to shed its puppy fat. Quintessential Fonseca really."Neal Martin May 2009 – 95 points
Very bright colour, very single-minded nose. There's a lot of fruit but it's extremely focused at this stage. Intense - showing chocolate, tobacco, toasted wood - it's very charming and seems quite developed, being generous with the secondary flavours considering its age.Drink 2008-2038.
