09 Fontanella Portmanteau ($32) ☺☺☺ 

Its nearly a year since we first tasted this wine and it was good to open another bottle to see how ti has aged. The good news is that is is getting better, the dominant fruit flavor of the blackberries is still there but now there is lashings of cocoa and smoky tannins. Not sure how many bottles we have left but I hope its lots !!
