2006 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 22:03 Tue 01 Jul 2014

By the glass from Vinum. Deep red colour, still opaque and looking young. Lovely fruity nose with lots of purple fruit. Smooth texture on the palate, rich and rounded fruit and dry but ripe tannins. Rich and flavoursome palate with good focus and ideal acidity. Lovely blackberry finish with great length. This is lovely, elegant port that has a lot of promise for the future. 90/100. Drunk 25-Jun-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
