Quinta Do Panascal Vintage Port Portugal Fonseca Guimaraens 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Fresh plum scents meld with the sappy green-herb character of esteva to distinguish this wine as a classical Cima Corgo Port. The beauty of that aroma matches the textural give of the tannin, the wineandrsquo;s tight, restrained power in service to the length of its flavorandmdash;the bright blue fruit, dark schist and herbal savor last on and on. A graceful, accommodating Porto, one to enjoy 12 to 15 years from the vintage.

Big and rich, with plenty of grip to the vibrant dark plum and sweet cherry flavors, which are firmed up by solid tannins. Features spice and chocolate notes on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2018.Refined and elegant, with an inky color, a raspberry aroma and ripe dark fruit flavors. Pepper and chocolate power the finish. Best from 2013 through 2016.

A fruity, big, ripe wine, its tannins enveloped in the forward fruit. There is sweetness from black figs and berries, while red berries give acidity.

Structured, complex wine that is only just beginning to hint at considerable depth of powerful, rich flavors. The structure is dry, a little lean, but with dense tannins. The fruit, rich plums and stone fruits is just coming through. Age for 10 years.
