This sweet wine shows fresh, rich blackberry and cassis aromas. On the palate, it has a well-knit structure, with a velvety, luscious mouthfeel and smooth tannins.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Purple red color. The smell is reminiscent of raisin pudding, figs and caramelized sugar. Cooked dark fruit character follows through on the palate, along with milk chocolate, baking spice and dried cherries and grapes. The finish is sweet and long. ”  (Jun 2013)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Intensely sweet, with a rush of deep, dark berries and cocoa. The velvety texture envelopes floral and spice flavors, while the finish is long and powerful.  (May 2012)

Bin No. 27 is produced primarily from grapes from Fonseca’s own quintas in the Cima Corgo—exceptional fruit that results in a wine of high quality and consistency from year to year. In the winery, the newly developed, robotic “Port Toes” technology for treading the grapes allows the winery to maximize the quality of the fruit by imitating the traditional action of human feet and avoiding damage to the bitter grape seeds. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. A ruby-style Porto blended from reserve wines selected for their intense depth of color and fruit character, Bin No. 27 is aged for four years in neutral wood vats before bottling.
Food pairing
This wine pairs well with strong-flavored hard cheeses--a good farmhouse Cheddar or an aged Gouda would be perfect. It is delicious with desserts made with dark chocolate or berries. Made to be enjoyed immediately, without further aging.

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.
