Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2012
Effusively fruity, offering luscious red plum, dark cherry and chocolate flavors that are well-integrated. Very suave and creamy as well, with a long finish filled with cocoa powder and Asian spice. Best from 2020 through 2045. 750 cases made.
The power of this wine is palpable. Great swathes of rich berry fruits roll around the palate with a not-too-sweet juicy acidity. It is, of course, young, powered by tannins, sweet plum juice and an intensely ripe structure. It needs many years, so don't drink before 2030.
