The 2000 Fonseca continues to exude finesse and focus on the nose, with pure blackberry, juniper berries, licorice and a touch of sloes, perhaps as Adrian Bridge remarked, just beginning to close after ten years in bottle. The palate is underpinned by very fine tannins, a sensual, svelte texture with wonderful acidity. The harmony and symmetry is alluring, the finish precise and demonstrating the persistency to suggest a long future ahead. Drink 2020-2060. - Neal Martin

Saturated medium-deep ruby. Exotic aromas of black fruit liqueur road tar smoked meat and hot stones; this reminded me of a great ripe-year Hermitage.

Exotic aromas of black fruit liqueur road tar smoked meat and hot stones; this reminded me of a great ripe-year Hermitage. Hugely rich and dense with compelling sweetness and pliancy but also sound framing acidity. Extremely youthful and very long on the aftertaste. Finishes with suave but strong tannins and excellent grip and thrust. Like the best examples of the vintage this won't injure your palate if you broach a bottle today but it's structured for extended aging.

Best after 2011... <b>"Collectibles"</b> Fabulous nose of crushed raspberries blackberries and licorice. Full-bodied and velvety with superclean fruit and a long finish. Beauty.
