2013 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 10:34 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Red with a purple tone, opaque. Restrained on the nose, showing a little fruit. Sweet and ripe on entry and full of baby fat fruit. The palate has a great flavour profile and wonderful tannins, which are ripe and vigorous but beautifully balanced. Delicious aftertaste. This is a lovely port. 94/100. Drunk 26-Sep-16. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
