2008 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 22:05 Mon 05 Jul 2010

Subdued nose, showing some violets and blackcurrants. Soft textured on the tongue, full of sweet fruit with the ripe tannins well hidden. Medium bodied and excellent balance. Long, balanced finish that is full of fruit and chocolate. 90-92/100. Fabulous balance and a really impressive port. 5 July 2010.
