Quinta do Vesuvio 2000
Quinta do Vesuvio's saturated blue/purple color is more dense than many of its peers. Impressive in the mouth, with full body, sweet creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur intermixed with smoke, earth, and spice, this sensual effort possesses elegance allied to power and authority. Complex, fat, rich, and intense, it is an exceptionally stylish, graceful effort to enjoy between 2006-2020+.

Big, sweet, voluptuous. Some lift and excitement. A little scrawny at the moment. Very tannic finish. Drink 2012-2020. Date tasted 8th Dec 08.
