Tasting Notes


International Wine Challenge (competition) source
2009 tasting note year

Intense concentrated chocolate, black cherry, liquorice and damson nose. Complex, full intense fruit palate, with firm grippy tannins, good body, and a persistent finish with spices and pepper. 

Score: Gold Medal

2003 tasting note year

Lovely nose of plums, chocolate and berries, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with super firm tannins and a tight tannin structure. Long and refined. It builds on your palate.

Score: 94/100

Robert Parker critic

Wine Advocate (magazine) source
2002 tasting note year

Quinta do Vesuvio's saturated blue/purple color is more dense than many of its peers. Impressive in the mouth, with full body, sweet creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur intermixed with smoke, earth, and spice, this sensual effort possesses elegance allied to power and authority. Complex, fat, rich, and intense, it is an exceptionally stylish, graceful effort to enjoy between 2006-2020+.

Score: 91/100
