Fonseca Vintage Port 2017

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  12227

Dark and dense, with fig bread, baker's chocolate and tar notes leading off before the core flavors of plum, black currant and blackberry paste finally start to emerge. The wild, spirited finish shows cast iron, licorice snap and roasted alder elements, delivering a decidedly chewy feel. A big, old-school, throwback Port that will age at a glacial pace. Best from 2035 through 2060. Collectibles. Score - 97. (James Molesworth,, Dec. 31, 2019)
