Fonseca Bin 27 Port 750ml
Fonseca Bin No. 27 was created over a century ago for family consumption, and only released commercially in 1972. It is produced primarily from wines from Fonseca's own quintas in the Cima Corgo and thus shows an exceptional quality and consistency from year to year. Blended from reserve wines selected for their intense fruit character and depth of color, Fonseca Bin No. 27 spends four years in large wood vats prior to bottling. Although it may improve slightly with bottle age, Bin No. 27 is ready to consume when bottled. It does not require decanting, as a cold precipitation prior to bottling prevents any "crust" from forming.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Chocolaty and plush, displaying good concentration to the ripe plum, mocha and dark cherry flavors, with paprika accents. Very fruity, with raspberry notes, on the finish.
