Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985 1977 1970 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits licorice chocolate and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured this multi-layered enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years.

(NM91-92 points) An earthy, fig-infused nose that is more expressive and open than expected whilst it is complemented by a scent of sea salt. The palate is supple, chocolaty and with a sense of minerality. It does not have the depth and concentration of the 2000 but it is still very fine. Drink 2012-2040.
