Impressions of raisins and walnuts are married to silky, dried red berry and currant flavors and aromas in this lush, finely structured wine, which shows a velvety, mellow texture supported by fresh, clean acidic notes.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 10-Year Old Tawny has a mellow nose with smoked walnut, singed leather and fireside hearth ? warm and autumnal. The palate has extrovert opening with notes of cloves and Xmas cake. I find this to be a little austere for a tawny port: reserved and conservative, but with fine delineation towards the saline finish. This is a commendable Tawny, although juxtaposed against the 20-Year Old simply reveals what this is missing.  (Feb 2013)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Aromas of orange zest and dried cranberries. Sweet caramel flavors on the palate. Intense and rich with warm spice character. Pair with salted nuts.  (May 2012)

Wine Spectator 90 points - Refined, with bright flavors of dried berry, plum compote and cherry tart that are long and lush. Very creamy on the finish, which features chocolate mousse. Drink now.—K.M.

Fonseca’s aged tawny Portos are made from fruit sourced primarily in Fonseca’s estate vineyards. In the winery, the newly developed, robotic “Port Toes” technology for treading allows the winery to maximize the quality of the fruit by mimicking the gentle action of human feet during traditional foot treading. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Each year, a portion of this ruby wine is set aside according to its aging potential to be added to Fonseca’s stocks for blending. The wine is aged in 600-liter neutral oak barrels, considerably smaller than those used for Ruby Portos. The increased surface area allows a young, dark Porto to develop the delicious apricot and fig flavors with nutty nuances expected of an aged tawny. Fonseca cellars its aged tawnies upriver in the Douro rather than in Vila Nova de Gaia near the river’s mouth; the considerable difference in heat and humidity between these two areas lends Fonseca’s aged tawny Portos a very distinctive “baked” richness reminiscent of butterscotch. The 10 Year Old Tawny is a blend of wines, selected from these stocks, that have been aged for an average of 10 years.
Food pairing
Excellent with dried fruit, pecans and walnuts. Made to be enjoyed immediately.

Producer
Founded in 1815, Fonseca is distinguished by its remarkable consistency of winemaking by successive generations of a single family, and is consistently one of the world’s top vintage Porto producers.
