2007 Fonseca Vintage Port Reviews



96 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Cellar Selection


“Dense and serious, a powerful vintage, as would be expected from Fonseca. The whole emphasis of the wine pushes the tannins forward, but this structure is based on black plums with dark fruit skins and a solid, chunky character. The finish is juicy and bold.”


95 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 2007 Fonseca is maturing nicely, with a perfumed, high toned, rich bouquet of macerated black cherries, blueberry, creme de cassis, and vanilla. The palate is very harmonious with plush dark cherry fruit, fresh fig, salted licorice and a supple, rounded, spicy finish that delivers wonderful purity and length. This is a sexy Fonseca, perhaps more generous and alluring than the 2009 – a quintessential Fonseca that should peak in 15-20 years time.”


94 Pointz Wine & Spirits


“Fonseca's rich, Cima Corgo style creates a sleek and supple 2007, a wine that's both generous in its bosky richness of flavor and sophisticated in its detail. Oak softens and rounds it into a savory chocolate cake with layers of black cherry and orange citrus, the tannins more graphite firm than schisty hard. This may well be accessible at an early age, perhaps 12 to 15 years from the vintage, while it has the substance to last for 40 or more.”


94 Pointz Wine Spectator


“A subtle yet powerful young Vintage Port, with freshly sliced plum, citrus and mulberry on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a solid core of powerful tannins and a long, balanced finish. So tight and reserved. Muscularly structured. Best after 2017.”


18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Dark ruby/crimson. Heady nose – crystallised violets and massive intensity. Firm tannins lurking under massive sweetness and a strong floral element. Lots of mass but not beefy. Very fine tannins so not quite ready yet. Big and bold.”
