The 1994 vintage of this wine was ranked #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1997
Impenetrable inky black color with purple highlights. As would be expected of Fonseca, the nose is dominated by a massively potent and concentrated fruitiness, packed with dense blackcurrant and blackberry aromas. Notes of
coffee and exotic wood and hints of wild herbs and mint. The palate is rich and luscious, with thick velvety and wonderfully well integrated tannins enveloped in succulent jammy fruit and rich dark chocolate flavors.
"Dense and serious, a powerful vintage, as would be expected from Fonseca. The whole emphasis of the wine pushes the tannins forward, but this structure is based on black plums with dark fruit skins and a solid, chunky character. The
finish is juicy and bold."
"Cooked raspberry, with hints of lemon peel and leaf. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a beautiful density and a sweet fruity and tannic aftertaste. Balanced yet muscular. A little disappointing, but clearly outstanding. Score range: 92-95"
"The 2007 Fonseca Vintage Port is opaque purple-colored with a high-class perfume of lavender, Asian spices, pencil lead, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits. On the palate it is voluminous with layered, succulent fruit, outstanding density, and excellent integration of tannin, acidity, and alcohol. The long finish and the wine’s impeccable balance suggest a lengthy evolution and a drinking window extending out to 2045. "
The Wine Advocate
"Fonseca's rich, Cima Corgo style creates a sleek and supple 2007, a wine that's both generous in its bosky richness of flavor and sophisticated in its detail. Oak softens and rounds it into a savory chocolate cake with layers of black cherry and orange citrus, the tannins more graphite firm than schisty hard. This may well be accessible at an early age, perhaps 12 to 15 years from the vintage, while it has the substance to last for 40 or more."
