Fonseca Ruby Port

Fonseca Ruby Port



Characteristic of the Fonseca house style, Fonseca Ruby Port is consistently rich, plummy and robust with a lush smoothness on the palate and an extremely harmonious balance of fruit, tannin and acidity. Ready to be consumed when bottled, it is most frequently drunk at room temperature after dinner with cheese, nuts or dried fruits, but can also be served slightly chilled, as do the French, as an aperitif.

Wine EnthusiastA big, bold and rich Port that is smooth and very plush with a velvet feel. The style is ripe and rounded, a delicious medley of jammy fruits and soft tannins.

Wine SpectatorThis floral style shows plenty of violet between the sweet cherry and dried red berry flavors. A bit light midpalate, with straightforward spice notes on the finish.
