Fonseca Twenty Year Old Tawny Port NV

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...I was quite blown away by this superb wine. The bouquet is deep and ethereal, as it offers up a fine mélange of orange zest, dried red berries, Fonseca's signature note of fennel, a complex base of soil, exotic spices and a lovely, Sherry-like note of nuttiness. On the palate the wine is fullish, focused and brilliantly delineated, with lovely sweetness on the attack, a fine core of fruit, great complexity, and a very cool and balanced profile on the long, classy and complex finish. This wine delivers a seamless palate impression and stunning grip, and is a glorious bottle of tawny. 2006-2016+. (Jan/Feb 2007)

Alright, but not as good as the Taylor Fladgate 20.

Color is in the medium range, a pale amber. Very long finish and smooth. A hint of vanilla and toasted almond.
