1989 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 00:19 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Mature brick-red, 60% opaque. A lovely nose, full of gentle sweet brambles, elegant and attractive. Balanced entry, mature fruit dominates the palate. The baked taste from earlier bottles has integrated well and delivers a lovely fruit driven elegance with an attractive figginess and some soft tannins still present. Sweet and fruity finish. Lovely long length, really lovely. 89/100. Drunk 23-Sep-14. Decanted 4 hours.
