Quinta and Vineyards Fonseca Porto Late Bottled Vintage 2011, Portugal 


My Rating 91 Points.   

Price $25.

 

Dark inky in color with a very short purple rim.

Sweet nose of cherries, blackberries, smoke, oak, Mediterranean spices, vanilla licorice, cloves, herbs, dark chocolates, coffee, caramel and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold, with high acidity and great legs.

Sweet on the palate with sweet plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, peppercorn, spices, milk chocolates, tobacco, alcohol, coffee and mocha.

Spicy long finish with soft tannins.

This port is drinking very nicely right out of the bottle. Well balanced with lots of acidity to make up for the sweetness. Nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

I paired it with a sweet chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream.

Aged for 5 years in oak vats, unfiltered and bottled in 2016.

20% alcohol by volume.
