Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) Fonseca vintage ports are marked by a style of great fruit richness, voluptuousness and firm tannic backbone. Their initial flavors of opulently concentrated black fruit and jammy spice evolve to reveal complex, silky impressions of dried currants, rose petal and dark chocolate with ending in a long, seductive finish.

    some heat from alcohol, but light fruit notes won over. Not syrupy. Had it after a cheeseburger and it was quite nice.
