2001 Quinta do Vesuvio

Split from here by DRT as this is a TN from a different bottle so deserves its own thread :wink:

I had this one 4 weeks ago and got completly different impressions.

Drank the half of a standard bottle within 8 hours .
Intitially nose of Cabernet (sic!), later plum, black cherry, spices. Generous sweetness, comlex fruit, full bodied, viscous. If chewed explosion of aromas of red fruits, cherry und dried plums, later licorice and black tea. Ends very long with masses of polished and finegrained tannins. Minutes later you can perceice black cherries in your mouth. I'd say that this will be a great one.
