2011 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 21:21 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Well developed nose, full of sweet lush brambles and a lovely herbaceousness. Lush fruit on the palate, ripe and rich. Smooth and silky texture, wonderful balance and tremendous development of one flavour after another. The balance and complexity hold into the finish and the huge length. A powerful blockbuster of a port in perfect harmony. 96-98. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
