"Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. If Fonseca lacks the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dow or Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, it excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavors. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports." Well, we agree unequivocally with Robert Parker, and this 2000 is a complex, mature port that will drink beautifully after an hour or two in the decanter. Expect mulberry, fig and gentle Christmas spices with a beautifully smooth and integrated sweetness.
