External Reviews for Fonseca Vintage Port
A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1966 Fonseca Vintage Port 750ml
This is still a monster that needs time. Deep ruby, with a ripe, meaty cassis and berry nose, full-bodied, with tons of velvety fruit flavors, full tannins and a very long finish. Can drink now. Best after 1994. -JS Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1966 Fonseca Vintage Port 750ml
This was not up to snuff with some VA and way too much alcohol protruding. Otherwise the nose was muted and with fruit in decline. Later on, the heat took over and was clearly an off bottle, as I have had this VP a dozen times in the past 3-4 years and have had much better bottles of '66 Fonseca. Normally it is at the apex of this fine vintage, just below the greatness which is the exalted Nacional. Discussion ensued and some believed it to be a very good bottle and others also realized it was disjointed and imperfect.
