''Expressive, with a wave of pure creamed plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit gliding through alongside anise and chocolate notes. Velvety, caressing and suave finish. Will be hard to lay off this one in its youth.'' 97 Points, Wine Spectator Magazine
''Expressive, with a wave of pure creamed plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit gliding through atop enticing anise and milk chocolate notes. Velvety, caressing and suave finish too. Will be hard to lay off this one in its youth, but it's destined for terrific development.'' 97 Points, Wine Spectator Magazine
''This is a big, ripe Vintage Port with dried fruit, such as figs and prunes and chocolate. Full-bodied and very sweet with lots of round tannins and a long, flavorful finish.'' 96 Points, James Suckling
''The magnificent Quinta do Vesuvio estate has produced a densely rich Port. Its tannins and big black fruit are just the starting point for a long journey. It is sumptuous and structured at the same time.'' 94 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
''This has a plush bouquet of black fruit laced with clove, nougat, boysenberry, jam and white pepper. Medium-bodied with impressive spicy attack on the entry - cracked black pepper and bitter orange, touches of liquorice and mint towards the well structured finish. A quality Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port.'' 93 Points, Neal Martin
This is arguably the most beautiful and scenic of all the single Quinta's, sitting proud on a bend on the placid River Douro. Great perfume, delicate character and firm structure make a very powerful and complex Port.
