Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Vintage Port 2004
94 pts Wine Enthusiast - A fat, plump, luscious wine. Full of rounded, ripe jammy fruit aromas. Almost warm 'marmalada' like note to the nose. The ripeness and richness of fruit is reinforced in the mouth with flavours of plump, bursting plums and cherries. Great notes of tobacco, smoky tea (lapsang) and spice. A warm, velvety, satiny wine. An enticingly very textural wine!

Winemaking:
Quinta do Panascal is a substantial Grade A property located in the heart of the Tavora valley, in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro. The Quinta undertook an ambitious planting programme from 1987-1995 and is now one of the largest Quintas in the Douro valley, producing top quality port. A Quinta do Panascal Vintage port is produced only when a general Fonseca declaration is not made, as this wine forms the backbone of a Fonseca Vintage port blend. The decision to bottle a Quinta do Panascal vintage is taken when the wine is judged to be of exceptional quality. Like a Fonseca vintage port the wine spends two years ageing in wooden casks before being bottled. However, the wine is not released immediately after it is bottled but left to mature in Fonseca’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia until it is ready for drinking; normally ten years after the harvest.

Grape Varieties:
Old Vines

Tasting Notes:
A fat, plump, luscious wine. Full of rounded, ripe jammy fruit aromas. Almost warm 'marmalada' like note to the nose. The ripeness and richness of fruit is reinforced in the mouth with flavours of plump, bursting plums and cherries. Great notes of tobacco, smoky tea (lapsang) and spice. A warm, velvety, satiny wine. An enticingly very textural wine!

Store and Serve Advices:
Should be opened two hours before serving and decanted. Serve between 17º and 18º C. Store the bottle on its side, in a cool, dry and dark place.

Food Pairing:
Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.

17 points - Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Vintage Port 2004

The aroma is already at the point, fruit in syrup, elegant, fine, herbal liqueurs, spices. Soft and well proportioned in the mouth, it gives much pleasure to drink now, polished and silky. A pleasure that no longer requires guard.

94 points - Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Vintage Port 2004

In the Fonseca tradition, this is a hugely rich wine, very dense. It is not all weight, with excellently integrated firm tannins and a range of complex flavors, from nuts and berry fruits to full frontal ripeness. There is some dryness to finish.

90 points - Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Vintage Port 2004

Black in color. Shows intense, focused aromas of blackberry and wet earth, with hints of wet tobacco. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with plenty of black pepper and fresh fruit character. Best after 2015. 5,000 cases made.
