Quinta do Vesuvio 1997

Tasting Notes

A delicious, forward, dark saturated ruby/purple-colored port, this 1997 reveals copious quantities of jammy, grapy, black fruit flavors intermixed with earth and spice, full body, and silky tannin. It should drink well soon, but last for two decades.

Round and a bit loose and soft. Easy. Cinnamon notes but a bit spiky. Less mass on the palate than the others. Drink 2012-2020. Date tasted 8th Dec 08
