Tasting Notes


Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house`s most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years. Importer: Kobrand, Inc., New York, NY; tel. (212) 490-9300.

The Winery


With three quintas or estates, throughout the Douro region of Portugal, Fonseca is a port house recognized for a lush and exotic style of its vintage releases. In 1815 the Fonseca and Monteiro families founded the house, but by 1949 the company was sold to Taylor Fladgate which had loaned Fonseca considerable sums since the outbreak of war in 1939.

Each estate that Fonseca owns is responsible for different and complex wines ranging from rich and jammy Quinta do Panascal in the Távora Valley to the tannic and dense Quinta do Cruzerio and Quinta de Santo Antonio in the Pinhão Valley. Through the years Fonseca has built a loyal community of Port enthusiasts who value its distinctiveness and unmatched character of its wines.
