    Winemaker's Notes:

    This luxuriant, firmly structured wine is marked by intense black fruit and cassis flavors and aromas with nuances of spice, nutmeg and sweet herbs set in a plummy, saturated texture ending in a lush finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deeply colored, with intense freshness and juiciness to the blackberry, dark plum and raspberry tart flavors that extend with hints of cedar on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

    92 Points
    Wine Spectator

    A well-balanced wine, bringing both rich fruit and sweet tannins to go with dense concentration. There is ripeness from black jam and sweet jelly, followed by a good core of dryness.

    While WS rated Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage 2005 a 92 I would give it an 88. Still a nice port and worth the $22.99.

    This wine is not what it is supposed to be - originally, this wine was advertised as the LBV 2005 with a 92 wine spectator rating. I ordered it and received the unfiltered LBV 2005, which got an 86 wine spectator rating. Since then, Wine.Com had changed the picture of the label to reflect the unfiltered, but has not changed the WS rating to reflect the true rating. Buyer beware!
