This is a powerful, attention-grabbing wine, with taut muscularity. It offers magnificent aromas of rockrose, mint and hints of ginger. The substantial palate is full with expressive black fruit notes lifted by peppery schist tannins (the ‘seasoning’ provided by the Sousa?o).

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 2006

Vintage Port

The Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2006, was 'declared' as a vintage by the shipper.

Classic power with a lovely violet-scented and peppery nose and delicious layers of opulent blackberry fruit within a finely structured tannin framework that ensures very good aging potential. The hot summer of 2006 has added an additional layer of concentration to the traditional Vesuvio velvety richness and depth. This is a very great Vesuvio Vintage Port.

This most beautifully located quinta (farm), down on the water's edge of the River Douro has been revitalised by the Symington family. This is a major 'house' that continues the tradition of treading the grapes in the ancient stone 'lagares' (troughs).

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 2004

Vintage Port - SINGLE BOTTLE

** 94/100 Points - Wine Enthusiast ***

A 2004 vintage port wine. Only 1100 Cases made in 2004. The 2004 Vesuvio has an opaque, inky purple colour. The excellent ripeness of the grapes and the relatively high Baumés allowed for longer fermentations, producing wines of exceptional concentration, depth of colour and tannic structure. It has a fragrant nose of violets and layers of rich blackberry fruit on the palate, making it irresistible for broaching young, although the wine will age for decades.

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 1998

Vintage Port

Tasting Note:

The Quinta do Vesuvio 1998 remains slightly muted on the nose with notes of small black cherries smoke and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with powdery tannins the fruits having mellowed over the last few years less high-toned with attractive black olive notes inflecting the glossy black fruits. The finish is still a little broody with a smudge of alcohol denying it delineation. Drink now-2025. Tasted October 2011. Source: eRobertParker.com
