Quinta do Vesuvio
2016 Capela da Quinta do Vesuvio' Vintage Port

95
"The 2016 Capela da Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port has been only released in exceptional years since 2007, this being the third release of the "tête de cuvée". It is more backward and broody than the regular Quinta do Vesuvio with blackberry, cassis and briary aromas, and a hint of clove. Yet there is a sense of holding something back on the nose, something that will only be revealed with bottle age. The palate is rounded and supple with good depth, far more open than the aromatics with lightly spiced black cherries, cassis and blueberry fruit. It feels silky smooth towards the finish with a long aftertaste that just needs to gain a little more complexity, as I am sure it will in bottle. This has huge potential."
