2013 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 00:00 Sun 28 Jun 2015

Cask sample. Intense purple with a tiny rim. A wonderful nose of blackcurrants and lavender. The blackcurrant immediately dominate the palate with powerful tannins wrapped around the exuberant fruit - a delicious fruit-led palate. The fruit also dominates the aftertaste before a chewy, dark chocolate finish full of bitter cherry. This is lovely port. 90-92/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
