Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 1994


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

This Vintage is beginning to show some of the wonderful characteristics of bottle matured wine. It can be drunk now but will repay a few more years in your cellar. One of my favourite wines of the vintage. Its floral aromas are quite sensational.

Wine SpectatorTerrific aromas of berries and violets, with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine, silky tannins that build on the palate and caress the tongue. Outstanding concentration and harmony. Greatest Vesúvio this century. Best after 2010. 5,000 cases made.

James Suckling, April 30, 1997

Wine AdvocateThis impressive wine, with an opaque ruby/purple color, reveals excellent richness, layers of flavor, well-integrated alcohol and tannin, moderate sweetness, and a long, heady finish. Pure and impressively built, it should drink well in 5-7 years. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.

Robert Parker, October 1996
