Esteemed, Iconic Fonseca Vintage Port

While fortified wines in the style of port are crafted the world over, real Port is only from Northern Portugal's Douro River Valley. Made from many different kinds of grapes, Port wine has a distilled spirit added to it, such as brandy. The resulting drink is syrupy-sweet and dense, often served with desserts. Fonseca Vintage Port is regarded as one of the best ports in the world. What began as a very small Port producer in the early 19th century, it was taken over and renamed Fonseca by a Portuguese businessman in 1822. He was determined to see success in Fonseca's results, and today it is regarded as one of the world's finest port wines. With an array of herbs, exotic wood, marzipan and plum aromas with minerality, Fonseca is solid, with well-integrated tannins. This gives complexity to black fruit flavors, with notes of dark chocolate and licorice.
