1994 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

SKU #500640
Classic, monumental wines with fabulous rich fruit character. Probably one of the best vintages of the 20th Century. Inky dark color. On the nose an outstanding concentration of floral and ripe fruit aromas, with hints of bitter chocolate. On the palate, massive structure, with distinctive berry fruit flavors and superb grip. Very concentrated, and a long, long finish.

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Terrific aromas of berries and violets, with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine, silky tannins that build on the palate and caress the tongue. Outstanding concentration and harmony. Greatest Vesúvio this century.
Quinta do Vesuvio is arguably the most magnificent estate in the Douro valley. Located in the beautiful and austere Port-growing region of the Upper Douro valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All of the grapes are hand-picked, with a careful selection being made. Vesuvio is one of the very few estates in the Douro where all of the wines are made using the traditional treading method in granite lagares, among the largest in the Douro valley, and offered exclusively as a single Quinta Vintage Port. In 1989, Quinta do Vesuvio was purchased by the Symington family whose involvement in the production and shipping of Port began more than a century ago. Vesuvio is now ranked as one of the top-tier Vintage Port producers. Over the last decade, Quinta do Vesuvio has amassed an impressive number of awards at international tasting competitions around the world.
