Save $40.00 (33%)

SKU 07923


Inky purple colour. Complete nose, with impressive depth and background, displaying the concentrated and opulent fruitiness which is the hallmark of the Fonseca style. Rich blackcurrant and plum aromas overlaid with spicy and floral notes. Full bodied and velvety on the palate, with ripe chewy tannins providing frim grip to support the long fruity finish.

International Wine CellarSaturated 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. 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.

Wine SpectatorFabulous nose of crushed raspberries, blackberries and licorice. Full-bodied and velvety, with super-clean fruit and a long finish. A beauty. Very harmonious for Fonseca. Best after 2011.
