2000 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

SKU #1001176 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lovely nose of plums, chocolate and berries, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with superfirm tannins and a tight tannin structure. Long and refined. It builds on your palate. Best after 2012. (JS) Inner quote mark (5/2003)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Quinta do Vesuvio is owned by the Symington family but managed separately from the family’s shipping brands (Dow, Graham, Warre). Vesuvio’s immense terraces and vast open lagares for fermentation, have produced a suitably dense, dark, brooding 2000, perfumed with violets and bursting with solid tannins. This is a great vintage wine. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby-purple. Superripe, primal aromas of black raspberry, maple syrup and dark chocolate; very sweet but also highly aromatic. Lush, chewy, very sweet and rich, with outstanding depth of black fruit and spice flavor. Hugely rich and ripe but not over the top. Serious, ripe tannins are currently covered by baby fat, making this very broad, thick, slightly spirity wine deceptively approachable now. (ST) Inner quote mark (2/2003)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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+. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2002)

K&L Notes

Great wine. Lots of plum aromas that follow to the palate. Racy, sexy, voluptuous wine. Has good grip at back end. Tannins masked at this stage by tons of fruit. Mid-term ager.
