1963 Quinta do Noval Nacional vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:16 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deep red colour, almost as dark as the Noval 1931 shown alongside. Sour cherries on the nose. Exquisite entry, smooth and silky while also dry and tannic. A lovely core of ripe acidity and just massive in the mouth with huge levels of fruit and such amazing complexity. Just as huge and massive an aftertaste. Truly a phenomenal port. 100/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
