Had this a year ago, tried a new batch. I’m a big fan of Tawny Ports, especially the 20 year blends. Fonseca Port was founded in 1822 and successive generations of the Guimaraens family have upheld the Company’s reputation. Medium amber color with aromas of honey and nutty notes. On the palate ripe dried fruits with sweet cinnamon spice and oak emerge from the glass. Soft tannins lingering finish ending with a sweet nutty character. Very nice. Tasting Sample.

Another fine effort drinking with my padre in Naples Pelican Bay Colony Shores. Great accompaniment to fine cigars. Always appreciate a fine port. 20 year tawny tasted April 2015. Cheers!

Very smooth Lacks some of the depth of similar bottles, but makes up for it with a drinkability and clean finish.
