Prats And Symington

Quinta do Vesuvio (Symington)

Douro Red Blend 2015

Solid but unremarkable Douro. Deep dark brooding wine with plum flavor. Unfortunately, I did not have time to decant it and consumed it immediately upon opening. I suspect this wine would open up with an hour of air. Smooth and elegant without decanting but one- dimensional. — 3 days ago

Deep, full bodied, still reasonably tannic though not overpowering. Fair amount of fine sediment. Black fruits, very herbal, peppery. Took a while to start opening up. — 10 months ago

Cockburns Late Bottled Vintage Porto Port Blend 2017

Never seen a Cockburn’s LBV in my European travels, but found this locally here in Portugal, very dark color, rich, structured, raisins and nutty aromas and flavors, just a lovely LBV Porto, this is super fine, long finish, I have VERY fond memories of the 1983 Cockburn’s Vintage Porto (best of the 1983s, IMHO), so fond of the producer, very fine LBV Porto for 16€!! — 7 months ago

Warre's Vintage Porto 1985


Feb 2023. Slightly brick red color, more than last year. Palate slightly less candy sweet. Carefully decanted. A week later, very fine sediment on bottom of decanter. Recommend long decant. A month later, still drinks smooth and sweet. — 7 months ago
