1992 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by g-man » 02:23 Sun 28 Aug 2011

decanted 3 hours

a purplish reddish color with a dark opaque core.

a nose of raisins and dried currants with a slight leathery component, the spirits are noticeable.

sweet, lush and filled with dark purple fruits and sweet roasted game meats, a bit simple. the tannins and acidity are still apparent surprisngly short finish of oak and spirits.

85-88 so far.

Finished up last 2 glasses last night.

The oak is very apparent in this port.

Disjointed flavors of raisins, sugar, spirits and loads of oak.

Feels like a dumb phase.
