WS 100
Wine Spectator, April 1997
#1, Top 100 of 1997. Hold on to your hat. 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... #1, Top 100 of 1997. Hold on to your hat. 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. 8,000 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. - Robert Parker
