NV Quinta do Noval Black

Post by AHB » 23:31 Sun 29 May 2016

Mid red tone, 80% opaque. Gentle stewed nose, softly fruity. Fruity impact with soft strawberries and gentle lemon juice. Gentle tannins on the edge of the palate and persistent strawberry. Sweet and slightly jammy with a woody overtone on the long finish. This is soft, round and elegant drinking. 85/100. 04-May-16
