THE WINE ADVOCATE Buying Guide, 2nd Edition (Jan 1989) Robert Parker - 92 points
Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port...With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wines, but I always find myself upgrading my opinion of Fonseca after it has had 7-10 years of age. The 1983 is magnificently scented, full-bodied, creamy, rather forward, but showing great length and character.
