1977 Fonseca Vintage Port Reviews

100 Pointz Wine Spectator

“What a Vintage Port. Dark ruby center, with a dark garnet edge. Aromas of flowers, blackberry, and licorice. Subtle and complex. Wow. What a palate. Full, concentrated, and rich, yet balanced and beautiful. Solid and sleepy. Still not giving all it has to give. This is just coming around. Gorgeous and classy. Love it.”

93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. If Fonseca lacks the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dow or Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, it excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavors. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wines, but I always find myself upgrading my opinion of Fonseca after it has had 7-10 years of age. The 1977 has developed magnificently in the bottle … it is the best Fonseca since the 1970 and 1963.”
