2009 Fonseca Vintage Port
Fonseca will only declare a classic Vintage Port in exceptional years. Normally, you will not see a vintage declared within two years of another declared vintage but that’s exactly what you have with the 2009. The last time Fonseca declared a vintage two years after the previous one was the 1994 vintage. If that’s an indication of how good the 2009 will be down the road, then this is a vintage to buy and put away in the cellar.


Wine Spectator 95 Points

This is gorgeously vibrant and grapey, with good cut to the luscious dark fruit and cedar flavors that are flanked by zesty acidity and tannins. A touch brooding midpalate, with a minerally rush and a finish of slate and iron. Best from 2016 through 2036. 7,000 cases made.-KM

Wine Enthusiast 95 Points

A classic Fonseca, rich and powerful, with just an extra edge of weight from the vintage. It has a dry character, a tannic edge that gives great promise, but the open-hearted fruit is all there. A wonderfully intense wine for aging.
