Tasting Notes

Roy Hersh critic source
2007 tasting note year

Opaque ruby color. The ’92 conveys an enjoyable earthy nose with some spice, cocoa powder and red fruit aromas. The fruit is vibrant and ripe with some chewy raspberry and grenadine flavors and of the first four vintages the most density is seen here.

2005 tasting note year

Shows a raisin and grape skin aroma. Full bodied and medium sweet, with astringent tannins. Very young. Still tight and powerful; needs time to mellow.

Score: 92/100

Richard Mayson critic

World of Fine Wine (magazine) source
2004 tasting note year

Deep opaque centre, thin purple rim. Still closed but with underlying power and intensity.  Lovely soft, rich, fleshy fruit, already mellowing but backed by hefty broad tannins.  A very fine long distance wine.

Score: 17.5/20

Robert Parker critic

Wine Advocate (magazine) source
1995 tasting note year

A supple, charming, dark ruby/purple-colored wine, Quinta do Vesuvio's 1992 Vintage Port offers excellent concentration, a velvety texture, not much weight or tannin, a precocious, penetrating fragrance, sweet fruit, medium to full body, and a gentle finish.  It will drink well young and last for 20 years.

Score: 90/100
