2011 Quinta do Vesuvio Capela

Post by AHB » 21:23 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Fruity on the nose and with a lovely herbaceous overtone. Sweet fruit on entry with wonderful aromatics and complexity. Great tannins, firm but wrapped in velvet fruit. Big and mouthfilling presence but a slightly watery texture. Tannins dominate the aftertaste, which leads to a long and fruit-driven finish. Very attractive port. 93-95. Tasted over 3-4 hours on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
