Fonseca: Premium Reserve Porto Bin Nº27

Fonseca: Premium Reserve Porto Bin Nº27

Fonseca Bin Nº27 is made by blending from reserve wines selected for their superb fruit character and depth of color and their well-knit structure. This full bodied fortified wine is aged 3-4 years in vats which help the wine maintain freshness of flavor and young color for longer if you wish to store it.

The nose to my senses was of nutmeg, grapefruit, blackcurrant, and honey. The palate was of apricot, plum, honey, prune and oak. Yes, there's a lot going on in this port, but it is well structured. The overall impression to the mouth is thick and meaty, almost chewy. The finish is fairly stout and lingers with prune sweet notes. As the bottle opens days later, the palate moves to apricot, with a distinct strawberry flavor that is quite nice. Also plum, honey and prune notes are present as in the opening palate. The overall combination of these flavors reminded me of eating cotton candy with a warming effect. Cheers!
