This is the best Fonseca since 1977 and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing with masses of color aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries boasting loads of crushed grape violet and berry character. Big full-bodied and very sweet with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge it's a long-term great Port. Best after 2012. 8000 cases made. -JS

One of the most spectacular 1994s this opaque purple-colored wine is an exotic flamboyant ostentatious port. Extremely fragrant and pungent with a flashy display of jammy cassis pepper licorice and truffles this port is an attention-grabber. Awesomely rich and full-bodied with superb length richness and overall balance it possesses a huge mid-palate layers of flavor an unctuous texture and a blockbuster finish. Everything is in place with the brandy and tannin well-integrated even concealed by the masses of fruit and glycerin. This wine will drink fabulously well at age ten but keep for up to thirty years. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2035.
