2008 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by DRT » 09:02 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

A good open nose with red berries and molasses. Thick textured with lots of red fruits, acidity, grippy tannins and good structure. Very sweet finish. A good solid, reliable port. 89 points.
