Fonseca Porto Porto Vintage 2000

Full nose, with an impressive depth, with a lot of background and this richness of sap which distinguishes the great wines of Fonseca
Rich aromas of blackcurrant and plum with spicy and floral notes
Velvety, ample and chewy on ripe, firm tannins that support a long fruity finish.

I thought I had a dull color. Compared with other Porto was rough.
Not recommend taking this generous of Fonseca with meat.
