The nose is rich and exuberant, brimming with dark, seductive blackberry and cassis aromas laced with licorice. This is a wine for Cabernet Sauvignon lovers. Round and luscious on the palate, it follows through with a dense jammy infusion of wild berries, and velvety tannins. This exhibits the classic black fruit flavor of Fonseca.

"Structured, complex wine that is only just beginning to hint at considerable depth of powerful, rich flavors. The structure is dry, a little lean, but with dense tannins. The fruit, rich plums and stone fruits is just coming through. Age for 10 years." -RV, 3/1/08
