Lot #1172. Fonseca Vintage Porto 1997

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Portugal, Douro, Porto.
Score: 93+ ST.
"Full saturated ruby. Inky, brooding aromas of syrupy black fruits and violet. Dense, thick and tactile, with superb depth of flavor and compelling juicy sweetness. Finishes with powerful tannins and superb grip. Not as flamboyantly aromatic as this wine normally is in its youth, but structured for long, slow development in bottle." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/June 2000
Notes: Lightly scuffed, nicked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $50
