    This is really a ridiculous value. A rich and generous wine by any standard, it's a good bottle to have in the rack for an impetuous opening. The best part is that it will develop and keep for some days or even a week after you open it, so you're going to get some mileage here even if it doesn't get poured around a big group. Like with my Riesling collection, I need some satisfying and pleasurable "interference wines" to keep me away from the expensive stuff.

    This wine is so delicious! On the nose the black fruit hit me immediately, then notes of lavender and rosemary swirled about. It's slightly sweet liquid cassis jelly, smooth, and concentrated with a slight herbaceous note, almost garrigue-like in the background. I usually drink Port at the end of a special meal, at this price I can have it after any meal!

    This port comes through big, dark, and ripe! Lots of richness and spice. Lovely notes of toasted vanilla and cherry. Easy to drink and easy on the pocket-book. This is my next go-to port for the house!

    Wow, the greatest port value I have tasted in many years! Super sweet with flavors of chocolate covered cherries and cassis. Beautifully, soft and delicious. Far better than many VINTAGE ports produced in the 70's and 80's. If you have never tried a good port, this is on heck of a great way to start. I will be buying a few to keep me away from my vintage ports.

    There are certain wines I love-but don’t drink enough of them on a regular basis. Port is the #1 wine on that list. One of my favorite ways to end a meal is to enjoy a glass of either ruby or tawny port with dessert or a cheese plate. The 2011 Fonseca “Late Bottle Vintage” Port is the perfect after dinner wine; aromas of fig, blackberry, cassis and marzipan cede way to a palate full of cassis, blackberry preserves, spice and vanilla notes. This seamless red is so smooth and seductive you’ll be hard pressed to stop at only one glass and with an unbelievable price of under $18 you won’t feel any guilt over going back for a second glass.
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2030
