Quinta do Vesuvio 2004

Release Notes

The 2004 Vesuvio has an opaque, inky purple colour. The excellent ripeness of the grapes and the relatively high Baumés allowed for longer fermentations, producing wines of exceptional concentration, depth of colour and tannic structure. It has a fragrant nose of violets and layers of rich blackberry fruit on the palate, making it irresistible for broaching young, although the wine will age for decades.

Alcohol by volume v/v (20º C): 20%
Total Acidity g/l tartaric acid: 4.40
Baumé: 3.5

Tasting Notes

Roger Voss critic

2008 tasting note year

A powerhouse of a wine that goes from densely rich to massive without a pause. The ripe fruit, dark, heavy tannins and black plum and fig flavors all come from the terroir of this great vineyard.

Score: 94

Very complete and full. Caresses the palate. Pruney. Satisfying. Could approach this now! Nice tight finish.

Score: 18.5/20
