2005 Quinta do Vesuvio single quinta vintage port

Black, black, black. Wonderful youthful blueberries on the nose but dominated by tannins in the mouth, although there is a very pleasant fruitiness around and behind the tannin. But the tannis are powerful and dry the cheeks out instantly. The aftertaste - through the dry and peppery cheeks - is fruity and very long. A wine which shows a good deal of promise for the future. 90/100. Tasted 30/10/08 after 3 hours decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
