Tasting Notes

Jancis Robinson MW critic source
2008 tasting note year

Quite youthful and rich and round – but embryonic. Masses of ripe fruit! …and those curry spices on the finish. Long.

Score: 17/20

2007 tasting note year

Mature mid-ruby; light, soft, peppery nose with very modest fruit; a moderately concentrated, fluid, medium-weight wine with barely any tannin left; soft, medium-sweet lighter style of Port with a gentle fruit core and modest complexity and length.  Overall a little thin, you can feel the limited flesh and fruit already retreating from what tannic frame there is.  Not much to this and it has matured very quickly.  Drink up.

Score: 15/20

1994 tasting note year

Then [1992] powerful yet harmonious, fleshy, lovely flavour.  More recently [1994] less deep, a full rich flavour with promise of fairly early development.  Now - 2010.

Score: 3 Stars

Robert Parker critic

Wine Advocate (magazine) source
1992 tasting note year

The 1990 Symington's Quinta do Vesuvio possesses an opaque black/purple colour, and a sweet, rich nose with a whiff of liquorice and powerfully ripe fruit.  In the mouth it is full-bodied, with superb concentration, as well as a rich, opulent, deep finish. Drinkable now, it has at least 20 years of evolution.

Score: 93/100
