2000 Fonseca Vintage Port Reviews

96 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“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.”

96 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This has matured, with flavors of red and black currant preserves that have stretched out, while bramble, anise, red and black tea, and singed alder notes fill in through the plush yet well-defined finish. Gorgeous and on point now, but there's some serious latent depth here for those who want to push it further.”

95 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“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.”

Bonus Reviews

18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine

“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.”
