ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: 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.
At Vesuvio, the focus is always on making the very finest Port possible. All decisions reflect this single-minded pursuit of excellence. Even the first time visitor will quickly see that everything is done according to traditional ways and without compromise. At every step in the process, from the choice of grape varieties to plant, to aging and bottling the wine in the Douro, making outstanding Vintage Port is the overriding concern. Dark and intense purple color, on the nose showing a luscious ripeness with rich floral aromas of esteva (rock rose) and hints of blackcurrant. On the palate extraordinary rich and full-bodied, packed with layers of fruit and firm tannins, holding its richness all the way through to a long and concentrated finish.
