Fonseca Vintage Port 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multilayered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that last for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for over 30-40 years. The best Fonseca since the perfect 1977. Intense cassis, violet and plum aromas. Full-bodied, medium sweet and bursting at the seams with fruit and tannins. A wine of great mass and concentration.

It's difficult to choose just one of the '94 Ports as my favorite, but I always have had a slight preference for the big, muscular style of Fonseca. This is the best Fonseca since the stunning 1977, which I already rated 100 points. Is it possible to rate a wine 101?

In both 1992 and 1994, Fonseca was the top wine of the vintage, and now again in 1997 it is the finest wine both out of barrel and in bottle. A seamless wine that shows complex aromas of plum and spices, the structure to age effortlessly, and a lovely long finish.

Saturated blackish purple. Full=bodied. Highly extracted. Moderately tannic. Violets, blackberry, chocolate. Flora; accents on the nose lead a heavyweight palate with a solid mouthful of tightly wound fruit flavors showing great generosity up front. Finish is dominated by imposing tannins. A long-term keeper.

A subtle yet powerful young Vintage Port, with freshly sliced plum, citrus and mulberry on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a solid core of powerful tannins and a long, balanced finish. So tight and reserved. Muscularly structured. Best after 2017.

...a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963).

Fabulous nose of crushed raspberries, balckberries and licorice. Full-bodied and velvety, with superclean fruit and a long finish. Beauty. Very harmonious for Fonseca. Best after 2011.

A young Port, with good, dark color and mineral and raspberry character. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a firm, silky finish. This is outstanding, but I expected a little more from Fronseca; not as impressive as when tasted from barrel. Best after 2006.
