2007 Quinta do Vesuvio Capela vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:00 Sun 12 Jul 2009

Elegantly perfumed blackberry juice. Refined entry with huge amounts of perfumed fruit. Tannins are strongly present but never dominate the fruit. Surprisingly soft in the mouth. Massive aftertaste dominated by dark chocolate and blackberry. Much better showing than in London in May. 93-95. Drunk 28 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
