1994 Vesuvio

Post by Axel P » 23:04 Wed 07 Nov 2007

My personal Vesuvio-Favourite: the 1994 Vintage Port is of almost black colour with a very deep concentration. The nose is very typical for a young VP from an outstanding year: sweetness, alcohol, complexity and concentration without the ability to really pinpoint the individual aromas. On the palate this wine already shows concentration and power, although I’m quite optimistic that there will be more to come. Long to Very long aftertaste.

Get a hand on this wine whenever you can!
