Fonseca Tawny Port 10 Year Old NV
'100 Best Buys of 2009' and 91 points Wine & Spirits: Fruit interprets the alcohol in this wine with the orange-citrus scent of rum cake. Then Douro schist cuts the sweetness and strengthens the fruit presence to fuller pear, hazelnut and wildflower honey notes. It ends on a long, peppery buzz, delicious and satisfying. (Dec 2008)
External Reviews for Fonseca Tawny Port 10 Year Old
In the full Fonseca style, this aged tawny shows both rich fruit and a more serious wood-aged character. Good acidity follows the sweet initial taste, broadening into ripe flavors of nut, plum jelly, and a final crisp acidity.
