    Deep healthy crimson. Some treacle and more than a suggestion of volatile acidity. Slightly syrupy fortified red wine. Still very vigorous and youthful ? it probably needs rather more time to knit together. Very firm tannins and a dry finish. No shortage of alcohol.

    Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years.

    Intensely fruity on the nose, with lots of blackberry and violet. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with slightly astringent tannins and a medium finish. Silky. Still very tight. Needs time. '91/'92 Port retrospective. 8,500 cases made.

    Soft Cork was a challenge, great drink - deep purple, great flavor without being overly sweet - decant carfully to avoid sediment

Fonseca's wines have been created by family winemakers throughout the years, using traditional stone lagares to produce their top quality vintage port. Today's winemaking team is looking to employ new technologies such as piston paddle vats, known as "port-toes," to improve the quality of its non-vintage port wines. David Guimaraens, sixth generation Guimaraens, is the current winemaker and strives to maintain the house's "quest for quality, complexity and structure" as well as its prominent position in the world market.
