Very deep purple with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is tight, with impressive depth and background. The base of brooding dark berry fruit is laced with liquorice and dark chocolate. Fleeting balsamic, plummy notes emerge as the nose gradually opens up. On the palate, the wine has exceptional weight and volume, supported by a mesh of thick, dense tannins. Luscious blackberry jam and plum flavors surge through into a seemingly endless finish. A powerful and uncompromising Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage retaining every ounce of aroma and flavor. Excellent with fully flavored cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.

Wine EnthusiastBecause it has been bottled without filtering, this Port has a chance to age. It has the opulent character of a Fonseca Port, enhanced by the fine vintage. Rich and full in the mouth, the wine's stewed blackberry and sweet plum flavors, both underlined by tannins, are sure to age well. Drink from 2021.

Wine SpectatorThis is starting to mellow, with warm ganache, espresso and tobacco notes emerging from the core of well-steeped plum and black currant fruit flavors. A licorice snap detail streaks through on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2027. 7,800 cases made, 1,300 cases imported.
