2013 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 23:29 Sun 29 May 2016

Deep magenta with a purple edge. Big and floral on the nose, sweet and full of fruit. Wonderful perfumed fruit on entry with lots of supporting acidity. The tannins are firm and more burly than in the 2012 vintage, and the wine is more complete with power replacing finesse. Lovely port. 94/100. 04-May-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
