2009 Quinta do Noval LBV (Single Vineyard)

Post by AHB » 23:36 Sun 29 May 2016

Bottled unfiltered. Deep magenta, opaque. Soft and sweet mulberries on the nose. Poised entry, balanced and confident wih dry tannins lurking on the edge of the palate giving a clove-like complexity to the sweet fruit. A lovely mouthful with the poise and balance lasting throughout the palate. Fruit forward aftertaste. This is a good LBV of medium weight with 5-15 years ahead of it before it reaches its plateau. 89/100. 04-May-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
