Fonseca Terra Prima Organic Port

This had a lovely cassis and bramble on the nose, a little cracked coffee bean mixed with dark chocolate. The palate is soft, juicy dark berry fruit, a little heat up front and then some really tasty savoury elements creeping through.  Lots of coffee on the finish…. minty notes too with some more of the coffee bean flavour.  A long end, a touch of alcohol heat, but essentially a cracking cracking bottle of port.  87pts (Sept 2010)

Fonseca Guimeraens Vintage Port, 1996

There is an aroma of sweet tobacco, sweet herbs and sweet fruit! This is a lovely sweet elegant aroma with juicy, full on berries.  Lush fruit, some woody elements with a lot of tobacco, good brambles, a bit of higher alcohol and spice, but with a dried fruit finish.  Quite dry and spicy, bit of alcohol, but with plumskin and leath on the finish.  Very clean and great value.  87pts (June 2011)
