Notes from the winemaker:

Bin 27 shares the heritage and style of the great Fonseca Vintage Ports, as well as much of their depth and character.

However it is bottled when ready to drink and can be served by the glass directly from the bottle. Blended for consistency of character and quintessentially Fonseca in style, this reserve blend provides reliable and affordable value.

Deep youthful ruby color. Intense rich fruity nose crammed with pure blackberry, cassis, cherry and plum aromas interwoven with notes of spice.

The palate full bodied and round, with a smooth velvety texture balanced by firm mouth filling tannins. The juicy black fruit flavours linger into the rich luscious finish.

Ratings & Reviews


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV Bin No. 27 Ruby Reserve Port is a blend of typical Douro grapes held for four years in used French oak. It comes in with 97 grams per liter of residual sugar. This was a from a July 2018 bottling (although, unless you can read production stamps, that isn't so easy to determine). This reliable old friend has reasonable everything—intensity of flavor, concentration and structure. That last one might be the best part, though, as it shows some pop on the finish. Dry and tight, this familiar brand does nicely at a very nice price. If you choose to age it, it can probably hold decently barring cork failures, but aging is not the point here." - Mark Squires (31st Jan 2019)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Ripe and friendly, with cherry and plum paste notes forming the core, backed by a ball of red licorice flavors on the finish. Drink now. 36,400 cases made, 23,000 cases imported." - JM (Issue Feb 28, 2019)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This familiar brand exhibits the lush Fonseca style. Tannins are encased in generous red fruits, giving a wine that is smooth with just a touch of structure. This perfumed wine is ready to drink. Roger Voss" - (4/1/2018)
