1964 Quinta do Noval Nacional vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:17 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Ex-cellars in October 2006. Pale red / brown in colour, lightly coloured and transparent centre, very pale rim. Warm and rich scents of christmas spices on the nose. Sweet in the mouth, soft redcurrant jelly and a lovely spiciness. This is big and mouthfilling. The aftertaste is big and long and full of bitter oranges. Very sweet and lovely. Perfect for drinking now. 94/100. Drunk 27 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
