2006 Quinta do Vesuvio single quinta vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:49 Sun 30 Nov 2008

Very black wine. Swirling coats the glass with a purple rain. Pure blueberry juice on the nose with youthful power. Initially the fruit dominates in the mouth before some powerful tannins peep through that curtain of blueberry. This is pure fruit juice with a very, very long aftertaste. An excellent wine. 92/100. Tasted 30/10/08 after 3 hours decanting.
