Wine Spectator
Hold onto your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977 - probably even better than that legendary vintage - more like the breathtaking 1948. Masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
One of the most spectacular 1994s, this opaque purple-colored wine is an exotic, flamboyant, ostentatious, port. Awesomely rich, and full-bodied, with superb length, richness, and overall balance, it possesses a huge mid-palate, layers of flavor, an unctuous texture, and a blockbuster finish.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Portugal
The coastal country of Portugal is best known for its fortified wines, Port and Madeira. Port is so-named for Oporto, the coastal town where it is produced, not as a reference to the country name. Present-day Portuguese wine production began in the 15th century, with fortification of local wines beginning in the 18th century. The Douro Valley, Dão and Vinhos Verdes regions produce some of the better known Portuguese wines, including reds and whites from local indigenous grapes. View all our items from Portugal
