Fonseca Porto 20 Year Old Tawny

This is a mature wine of deep amber color with russet highlights. The bouquet's complex marriage of ripe, plummy fruit, warm cinnamon and butterscotch notes and subtle oak nuances are confirmed on the palate, which is full and voluminous, with a velvety texture carrying into a long, elegant finish. As you swirl this in the glass, the complexity builds with each sip, with layers of olive and almond, mineral and schist. It feels cool, balancing all the sweetness of fruit with fresh mineral acidity. A rich, bold mouthful. [+]
