2011 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 21:20 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Deep purple; fresh and floral nose with a good dose of acidity. Sweet entry, tannins ripe and round and swamped by the fruit. Ripe acidity provides further structure. A huge length of reasonable volume. A fabulous port in a very feminine and elegant style. 94-96. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
