Smoky, burnt, with lots of dried cherry, apricot, and crushed flower aromatics. Notes of same, with hints of alcohol on the palate. Very enjoyable.
94/100 (Outstanding) Wine Advocate Reviews: "The 2007 Fonseca Vintage
Port is opaque purple-colored with a high-class perfume of lavender,
Asian spices, pencil lead, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits. On
the palate it is voluminous with layered, succulent fruit, outstanding
density, and excellent integration of tannin, acidity, and alcohol.
Berry and summer fruit nose, spicy with some herbal hints over floral, voluptuous, minty fruit with violets and a fine tannic backbone and peppery complexity.
Deep, rich ruby color. On the nose bursting with lovely black fruit combined with a spicy complexity. Warre’s 2000 LBV has a palate of underlying richness and intensity with well rounded blackberry fruit and wonderfully structured tannins which lead to a long and lingering finish.
