Single Estate Vintage Port, Quinta do Vesuvio, Dow’s Individual Box 2012
Deep purple-black and inky in the glass, indicative of a voluptuous, blockbuster wine. It denotes opulence on the nose, with the richness and ripe blackberry aromas of the predominant Touriga Nacional. This is balanced with the distinctive minerality and floral fragrance of the Touriga Franca. It has a very fine structure and smooth tannins. The Tinta Amarela gives the wine a soft, velvety feel on the palate and the Sousão offers a sprinkling of peppery spice.
