Dual 94pt Scored Tawny Port: Gift Written All Over This!
Look what just landed in at #33 of the Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2012...
The Fonseca 20 Year Old Tawny Port!
We have been touting this port since the late spring when the Wine Spectator came out and gave this wine an amazing 94 point score. Then a month later the Wine Enthusiast echoed that 94 point review with a 94 point review of their own. Then last week the Wine Enthusiast released their Top 100 Wines of the Year and the Fonseca 20 year is on it.
"A gorgeous Port at that right stage where there is still freshness and hints of orange and dried fruits, while the wood aging is concentrating the wine into its essence. It is rich, full, yet at the same time has a great tang of spirit and acidity...94." WE 6/12.
"Intense, powerful and complex, this features heady aromas and flavors of toffee, marzipan, butterscotch and chocolate. Notes of mocha and French roast chime in as well, with a long, glorious finish of dried white fruits and spice...94." WS 5/12.
We have been telling you for a while...this is one of the top ports of the year and is Zachys #1 selling port of 2012!!!
With all this great press on a great bottle of port, we figured that this has Holiday Gift written all over it!
