Opaque purple black with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is rich and exuberant, brimming with dark, seductive blackberry and cassis aromas laced with liquorice and treacle. The round, luscious palate follows through with a dense, jammy infusion of wild berries and a mouthful of velvety tannins. The sumptuous, fruity flavors of the mid palate are lifted by an attractive dryness and tannic grip on the finish.

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Tinto Cao, and Tinta Amarela. Bottled by Quinta and Vineyard Bottlers Vinhos, which is owned by The Taylor Fladgate Partnership. The prehistory of the firm of Fonseca lies in the late 1700s, in a company known as Fonseca & Monteiro, located in Oporto. The Fonseca family, of Brazilian origin, conducted trade in various products primarily with Brazil, but by the 1820s, Fonseca & Monteiro dealt solely in Port wines. The present firm was not formally founded until 1815, when Manuel Pedro Guimaraens, who had been trading for the company, acquired control through purchase of the majority of the Fonseca holdings. As a condition of the sale, it was stipulated that the Fonseca name be retained.
