1991 Vesuvio

Post by g-man » 05:09 Thu 17 Nov 2011

popped and poured

bottle still had hints of purple turning red with a pinkish /brown tint around the rim.

absoltuely lovely nose of candied cherries, plums, crushed lavender and all spice.

a tannicy medium body that comes rushing in with loads of primal red fruit. I get even more spiced plums, but the tannins come back around and sneak up on you.
It's got a great fruity coffee finish that lingers around for 40-50 seconds.

This was a fantastic specimen of a vesuvio.
