Very suave and creamy as well, with a long finish filled with cocoa powder and Asian spice. Best from 2020 through 2045."
JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "Extremely ripe yet only lightly jammy with dark berries, licorice and flowers. Lilac and roses too. Full body, medium sweet and round tannins plus a fruity finish. A soft and friendly wine."$59.98

It comes in at 110 grams per liter of residual sugar. This was bottled in 2015 after 18 months in used oak vats. Seeming full bodied and quite dry in perception when opened, it kept getting sexier with air and time, the sugar and the sweet fruit eventually popping up. At the day day mark, it was irresistible and sensationally delicious. This inky black Vesuvio was probably my favorite Single Quinta in this report, although admittedly the beautiful Dow's makes it a close call and may have even more upside. If I had to pick one, though, this would likely be it. This is the sexier and more aromatic of the two. The Dow is more controlled and brooding, just a bit harder to read. They are both wonderful, though. On opening, this preened in its power, but its signature features will be the tasty fruit and powerful aromatics. That was, admittedly, not completely clear at first. Gripping and lingering on the finish, it is gorgeously constructed, nicely concentrated and it has more upside with cellaring than most of the 2013s I've been tasting. This needs some cellaring to become more expressive and softer. It should be worth the wait. (12/15)."
