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.

While many houses either declined to declare the vintage or made single-quinta Ports in 1995, Vesuvio crafted this classic. Itandrsquo;s even slightly better than Vesuvioandrsquo;s 1992 vintage Port, which checked in at No. 35 on the Wine Spectatorandrsquo;s 1995 Top 100.

Impressive. Dark purple in color, with lots of pretty plum, floral and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with very racy tannins and a long, fruity finish. Reserved, it needs time; best after 2004.

A ripe and rich andrsquo;95 boasting a remarkable essence of crushed berries, this is classic Port. Itandrsquo;s full-bodied and quite sweet, with the velvetiest of tannins and a long, long, ripe fruit finish. At its best after 2008.

Winemaker's Notes:

International Wine & Spirits Competition 2007 - SILVER MEDAL Quinta do Vesuvio is arguably the most magnificent estate in the Douro valley. Located in the beautiful and austere Port-growing region of the Upper Douro valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All of the grapes are hand-picked, with a careful selection being made. Vesuvio is one of the very few estates in the Douro where all of the wines are made using the traditional treading method in granite lagares, among the largest in the Douro valley, and offered exclusively as a single Quinta Vintage Port. In 1989, Quinta do Vesuvio was purchased by the Symington family whose involvement in the production and shipping of Port began more than a century ago. Vesuvio is now ranked as one of the top-tier Vintage Port producers. Over the last decade, Quinta do Vesuvio has amassed an impressive number of awards at international tasting competitions around the world. The wine is rich, dark and concentrated; it has aromas of violets and “esteva” (rock rose) and is very smooth and elegant on the palate. Wine Spectator gives this wine 95 points, and says, "A ripe and rich '95 boasting a remarkable essence of crushed berries, this is classic Port. It's full-bodied and quite sweet, with the velvetiest of tannins and a long, long ripe fruit finish. At its best after 2008."
