1992 Quinta do Vesuvio Colheita

Post by AHB » 20:50 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Freshly drawn from the barrel. Reddish brown core and an orange rim, 30% opaque. Subdued on the nose, a touch of coffee and some mandarin. Soft and smooth on the palate with a lovely texture. Lots of orange and a powerful coffee to the core. Lovely balance to the palate with perfect levels of acidity. A big and flavoursome finish. This is a great mouthful of port, round and full. 91/100. Drunk 22-Sep-14. Pop 'n' Pour.
