2000 Fonseca Vintage Port

SKU #1002484 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2000 Fonseca continues to exude finesse and focus on the nose, with pure blackberry, juniper berries, licorice and a touch of sloes, perhaps as Adrian Bridge remarked, just beginning to close after ten years in bottle. The palate is underpinned by very fine tannins, a sensual, svelte texture with wonderful acidity. The harmony and symmetry is alluring, the finish precise and demonstrating the persistency to suggest a long future ahead. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated medium-deep ruby. Exotic aromas of black fruit liqueur, road tar, smoked meat and hot stones; this reminded me of a great ripe-year Hermitage. Hugely rich and dense, with compelling sweetness and pliancy but also sound framing acidity. Extremely youthful and very long on the aftertaste. Finishes with suave but strong tannins and excellent grip and thrust. Like the best examples of the vintage, this won't injure your palate if you broach a bottle today, but it's structured for extended aging. (ST) Inner quote mark (2/2003)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fabulous nose of crushed raspberries, blackberries and licorice. Full-bodied and velvety, with superclean fruit and a long finish. Beauty. Very harmonious for Fonseca. *Collectibles* (JS) Inner quote mark (5/2003)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Exceptionally dark crimson. Luscious prunes in Armagnac on the nose. Well integrated and very hedonistic. Super luscious but with a real structure to it. Dry liquorice finish. Very dry finish indeed actually but pretty promising for the future. 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2011)
