This rare (only 3,000 bottles produced) and exceptional wine is only the third vintage to be released since its 2007 debut. The 2016 is one of the best vintages in the 21th century so far. Named after the small chapel at the 19th century estate, the 90 year old vines from the Vinha da Capela vineyard produced tiny yields of intense fruit.  Perfumed and seductive aromas of lavender and eucalyptus give way to substantial flavors that are amazingly fresh-tasting. Just 60 bottles for California. 98 Points Wine Advocate

Quinta do Vesuvio is undoubtedly one of the great estates in the Douro Valley of Portugal, consistently delivering some of the finest port wines in this legendary location. Located in the Upper Douro Valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All grapes are carefully selected and hand-harvested. Grapes are tread in the old-fashioned way in large granite lagars, some of the largest in the Douro Valley. Enjoy with Stilton and similar cheeses or alone.
