Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2010
Jeffery Lindenmuth - January/February 2014
Tucked between the widely declared vintages of 2007 and 2011, this single quinta wine represents the best of 2010, its ripe concentrated aroma oozing with kirsch and jammy berries. It exudes pure power on the palate, the decadent chocolate covered cherry flavors laced with licorice and herbs on the finish.
