Fonseca, Bicentenary Crusted, Port, Douro, Portugal

Bottled in 2008 and released for the bicentenary, this blend of wines from several years is bottled like a vintage Port, without filtration. Hence it will form a crust in the bottle. Deep, dark and intense, with more to give on the nose. The palate has super-ripe berry fruit, opulent and minty, and a powerful, ripe tannic finish.
