This wine shows fresh, black fruit and dark cherry aromas and flavors, with spice notes. This concentrated, structured wine has great volume and mouthfeel, with fine length on the finish.
An excellent pairing with full-flavored cheeses, especially blue cheeses, and with dark chocolate or fresh berry desserts. This wine is unfiltered and should be decanted because of sediment in the bottle.
"The fact that this LBV is unfiltered means it can age, although with its powerful fruit it is ready to drink now. Following the Fonseca style of rich Ports, this wine relishes its full texture, spice and great concentration."
"Complexity runs through the structure of this wine, expanding on the layers of heady red fruit and tight tannins. The scent is floral and perfumed, vibrant with berried fruit. A luscious Port to serve with a cheese plate."
