From the bottle:
"This limited edition label was created exclusively for Fonseca Bin 27 by acclaimed American artist Barnaby Furnas.
For centuries the Port industry relied on the Douro River to carry their world-renowned Port wines from the vineyards in the Douro Valley to the coastal town of Vila Nova de Gaia. Fonseca Bin 27 and artist Barnaby Furnas are proud supporters of the Waterkeeper Alliance, a global environmental movement focusing on issues that affect waterways from pollution to climate change.
The Fonseca Bin No. 27 Porto, a ruby-style Port aged in neutral oak for four years, opens with succulent aromas of plum, blackberry and spice. The full-bodied wine tastes rich, velvety and super smooth with a great spicy undertone. The primary flavors are plum, blackberry, a little raisin and prune, lots of nice spice and a little black cherry cola. It ends smooth and long with plenty more spice. This is a really delicious Port and considering 750ml goes an awful long way this is a fantastic deal. Best served at room temperature and it will last for about two weeks once opened.
