Fonseca Vintage Port 1997

Fonseca is a young port house but already has gain the reputation of a Premium Vintage Port producer with their wines ranking amongst the best. They are now a pioneer of organic and sustainable viticulture in the Douro Valley.

“Somewhat of a lightweight for Fonseca, but undeniably charming, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine offers a floral, exotic, flamboyant bouquet, a sweet, fleshy style, but not a great deal of weight or massiveness. Heady alcohol, sweet tannin, and a velvety texture make for a gorgeous finish. While I would have preferred to have seen more weight, structure, and intensity, this is an outstanding, albeit lighter than normal Fonseca. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.”93pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, January 2000
