2010 Quinta do Vesuvio vintage port

Post by AHB » 18:26 Thu 11 Apr 2013

Deep red; dark, opaque and brooding. Gentle and attractive fruity nose with lots of blackcurrant. Initially hollow, but then a huge wave of fruit and tannins explodes on the palate. Massive tannins, massive purple fruit and then a big bramble and licorice root finish. Stunning wine. 95/100. 20-Feb-13 at the New Douro Tasting.
