Description:

93 pts Robert Parker - Opaque purple color, almost black, with a very narrow purple halo. Classic nose, with an intense, almost intoxicating aroma of wild fruits. Fruity is powerful, but at the same time very fine and complex. The dense aromas of blackberry and cassis are the base notes for the mentholated and balsamic fragrances of aromatic herbs and the resinous character of rockrose. Understated notes of exotic wood, licorice and black pepper add an additional dimension of complexity. The palate is built around a dense core of black fruits and the tannins, with their dense, closed tissue, provide structure and volume at the same time. Raspberry and plum aromas add freshness and lightness to the long, exuberant finish.

93 POINTS

"A safe and courageous Fonseca, very full-bodied. Vigorous and muscular tannins, in a long and powerful aftertaste. Wild fruits of blueberries and blackberries, mineral notes reminiscent of flint. Slightly sweet. Best in 2019."
