Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Unfiltered Port 2016

Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Unfiltered Port 2016 is an exquisite and robust expression that highlights the unique characteristics of this outstanding vintage. The wine pours into the glass with a deep and impenetrable ruby color, immediately capturing the eye. The nose is a symphony of dark fruits, where blackberries and plums mingle with nuances of cassis, creating an aromatic profile that is both intense and inviting.

On the palate, this LBV Unfiltered Port reveals a tapestry of complex flavors. Ripe black fruits take center stage, complemented by layers of dark chocolate, black pepper, and a touch of tobacco. The wine's velvety texture showcases the seamless integration of sturdy tannins and sumptuous fruitiness, providing a luxurious and well-balanced mouthfeel.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 90:
The 2016 Late Bottled Vintage Port was bottled in May 2022 with 102 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It is a field blend aged for 72 months in wood. This is unfiltered, alone among the Fladgate Group's LBVs. Easily the most expressive of the Group's LBVs, this is still made in an accessible, easy fashion without big tannins or a lot of depth, and it is not supposed to be a wine to be held and aged a long time. In the long run, therefore, it isn't really much of a step up, if at all. Key trade-offs here, though, as with its siblings, are a great price point, lots of flavor and immediate accessibility. It is very elegant. Best after 2022.
