Going a long way towards busting the perception of Port being the drink of choice of stodgy old men at the clubhouse discussing their golf swing or the latest on CNBC, the FONSECA 20 Year Old Tawny Port has a fresh vivacity that squarely puts it in the era of the contemporary. Sure, the notes of fig, nuts, marzipan and butterscotch are all classic hallmarks of Portugese Tawny, but it’s the extraordinarily rich warmth of texture, viscosity and thrillingly complex length in the mouth that gives this wine a sense of occasion and modernity. In other words, it’s got attitude and swag—enough for any hip-hop artist to lay down their Courvoisier and rap to a different tune. -J.M.
