2011 Quinta do Vesuvio Capela

Post by AHB » 21:22 Sun 18 Aug 2013

300 cases. Intense purple, nose more closed than the regular Vesuvio but showing concentrated fresh blackberries. Sweet entry with masses of ripe fruit suddenly swamped by ripe tannins. Less fruit forward and more structured than the Vesuvio. Spicy aftertaste and a finish of great length. 92-94. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
