Deep purple black in color. A fine, elegant bouquet. Rich black fruit and dark cherry aromas, with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The palate shows luscious, rich blackberry fruit and a hint of blueberry. A wine with lovely textural quality; velvety smooth. The finish is rich in flavor and wonderfully intense and long. A perfect end to the meal, this benefits from decanting. A generously-proportioned glass will show its rich fruity nose best. Excellent with full-flavored blue cheeses (Stilton or Roquefort), chocolate and berry fruit desserts.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Late Bottled Vintage Port is an unfiltered field blend that comes with a bar top cork. It comes in at 108 grams per liter of residual sugar and was bottled in 2016, according to the label. Rather gorgeous, this fresh, tight and powerful Fonseca is perfectly focused, extracted and tightly-wound, finishing with intensity of flavor laced with some herbs and a hint of garrigue. Yet, everything is always in a very controlled fashion brilliantly supported by its structure. This is a beauty, another super 2011 LBV.
