Quinta do Vesuvio

Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca form the backbone of this outstanding Vintage. Very good colour with strong tannins that will give this wine great aging potential.

Wine Advocate

A delicious, forward, dark saturated ruby/purple-colored port, this 1997 reveals copious quantities of jammy, grapy, black fruit flavors intermixed with earth and spice, full body, and silky tannin. It should drink well soon, but last for two decades.

Score: 90. —Robert Parker, January 2000.

Wine Spectator

A fresh and dark Port, with lovely floral, berry and cherry aromas. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a firm backbone of tannins and plum and tobacco on the finish. Best after 2007.

Score: 90. —James Suckling, February 29, 2000.
