Fonseca "Bin 27" Port

SKU #240006 90 points Decanter

 Launched in 1972, Bin No27 is a Reserve Port aged for about four years before bottling vibrant, dense berry fruit on nose and palate, plummy in style with enveloping richness and a gentle, peppery finish. (RM)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 A finely blended Port, this has a bristle of tannins up front, melding their chocolate richness with dried fruit flavors, ending clean and sweet. The wine’s lasting spice places it with a savory pumpkin pie.  (12/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Bin No. 27 Ruby Reserve Port is a blend of typical Douro grapes held for four years in used French oak. It comes in with 97 grams per liter of residual sugar. This was a from a July 2018 bottling (although, unless you can read production stamps, that isn't so easy to determine). This reliable old friend has reasonable everything—intensity of flavor, concentration and structure. That last one might be the best part, though, as it shows some pop on the finish. Dry and tight, this familiar brand does nicely at a very nice price. If you choose to age it, it can probably hold decently barring cork failures, but aging is not the point here. (MS)  (1/2019)

Wine Enthusiast

 This familiar brand exhibits the lush Fonseca style. Tannins are encased in generous red fruits, giving a wine that is smooth with just a touch of structure. This perfumed wine is ready to drink. (RV)  (4/2018)

Wine Spectator

 Ripe and friendly, with cherry and plum paste notes forming the core, backed by a ball of red licorice flavors on the finish. Drink now. (JM, Web Only-2019)  (2/2019)

K&L Notes

"Bin 27" was launched in 1972, after careful deliberation over the aim of creating a blend of differently-aged ports that would be immediately enjoyable upon release. It's been a hit and a reliable buy ever since, and for this price, you can splurge on some cocoa-crusted truffles to pair it with. Maybe some proper port snifters, too!
