Fonseca 2016 has an open, high-toned and complex nose of black cherry, plum and violets. Full-bodied and powerful, the plate is rounded and fleshy – a complete mouthful. There is a good structure in place to support this volume and, as seems to be the way in this vintage, a bracing acidity. Texture is creamy, tannins are ripe, and the finish is impressive and long-lasting. This 2016 Fonseca has tremendous potential (for drinking 2025-2048+).
