Press comments:

Steven Spurrier, Decanter August 2011 – “…spicy, dense fruit with an iron spine behind the richness, energy and sweetness in Fonseca’s robust style, 2019 -2039.” 19 points

 Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, May 2011 – “Smooth, ripe, aromatic nose is lush and rich, with ripe – almost creamy – blackcurrant and raspberry fruit. Very sweet on the palate yet lively, vibrant and fresh, showing broad texture and some appealing tannic grip. Fine grained yet firm tannins combine well with very sweet fruit.” 94–96/100

Jancis Robinson, Purple Pages, May 2011 – “Blackish purple. Heady, opulent nose – really very winning indeed already! But on the palate there seems to be just a slight hole in the middle, a lack of sheer fruit weight. Long and vibrato on the finish though until an extremely dry note on the very end. This reminds me of a fortified version of a 2003 right bank bordeaux.” Score 17.5+. Drink 2030-50

Luís Antunes, Revista de Vinhos, Julho 2011 – “Aromas de lagar, passas, chocolate, fruta preta e cristalizada, caramelo de frutas, complexo, tenso e profundo.Muito encorpado, vigoroso e tex- turado, taninos sólidos, acidez viva, cheio de equilíbrio e personalidade.” Pontos 18,5

Rui Falcão, Revista Wine, Julho 2011 – “Cor preta absolutamente impenetrável. Nariz efusivo e alegre, muito mais frutado, hedonista e exuberante que o habitual na Fonseca, arremessando notas de amora e ameixa preta, deixando as especiarias e o chocolate para o fundo do copo, num registo mais retraído. Denso e sedoso, voluptuoso nos taninos suaves, não se cansa de expressar a fruta de forma entusiástica, com uma desenvoltura e descaramento que animam a alma.” Pontos 18,5
