Fonseca Tawny Port 20 year old
Wine SpectatorIntense, powerful and complex, this features heady aromas and flavors of toffee, marzipan, butterscotch and chocolate. Notes of mocha and French roast chime in as well, with a long, glorious finish of dried white fruits and spice. Drink now. 2,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastA gorgeous Port at that right stage where there is still freshness and hints of orange and dried fruits, while the wood aging is concentrating the wine into its essence. It is rich, full, yet at the same time has a great tang of spirit and acidity.
Wine AdvocateThe 20-Year Old Tawny has another mellow bouquet, a little reticent at first but opening nicely with hazelnut, smoke and pine cones. There is that lovely warmth on the nose that makes you think of a warm fire in winter. The palate is well balanced with a noticeable oxidative entry: hazelnut, smoke, orange rind and cloves with Indian spice towards the well-defined, persistent finish. This is a great expression Tawny Port and it offers significantly more than the 10-Year Old Tawny.
