Quinta do Vesuvio 2012 – Douro – Symington

The nose is fine and fruity. It reveals notes of cassis, flowers (violet and slight notes of rose) and plum associated with touches of blackberry jam. The palate is fruity, balanced, structured, dense, tight, sleek and offers a small minerality as well as an unctuous and slightly creamy matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry jam associated with slight notes of plum, chocolate, a small touch of red fruits as well as small notes of fig and violet. Tannins are fine and slightly firm. Good length with slight notes of caramelization and toasted oak on the finish. A powerful / well structured wine.
