Product Overview

97 Points - Wine Spectator
"Densely packed and dark in profile, with lots of warmed fig, mulled blueberry, a√Éßai berry and blackberry paste flavors rolling through, scored with graphite and tar notes, carrying through a finish that has a smoldering feel. A long licorice snap echo adds a lip-smacking hint. A terrific young Port. Best from 2035 through 2055. 1,220 cases made, 600 cases imported." -JM, 12/31/18

96 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Vintage Port is a blend of 43% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca and 17% Alicante Bouschet, with Tinta Amarela and Sous√É£o filling out the rest. It comes in with 115 grams of residual sugar. If this Quinta has a hallmark to me, it is the expressive, gorgeous fruit. It has a seductive feel, but it is also muscular and intense. It is one of the most muscular in the Symington stable this year, with the concentration to soak up the power. I'd give this the nod for the moment over the 2015, but they are pretty close, granting that I do not have them side by side. They may wind up in more or less the same place overall in the long run. We'll see. That said, this seems superb. Bottled in May 2018 and to be released in October 2018, there were 1,220 cases produced." -MS, 7/19/18

95 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a jammy, ripe and deeply rich wine. Its firm tannins are fully integrated with the powerful black fruits to give a wine with great potential longevity. The end has an almost fresh aftertaste. Drink from 2027." -RV, 12/1/18

92 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Quinta do Vesuvio from Symington’s has a slightly more savoury bouquet than its fellow 2016 releases – earthier, almost nuttier with some lovely grilled walnut scents percolating through with time in the glass. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry, notes of marmalade and dried quince infusing the cassis and black cherry fruit with high notes of blueberry and a slight saline tincture towards the well balanced, quite persistent finish. Very fine." -NM, Jun/2018
