1967 Quinta do Noval Nacional vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:19 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deeply red in colour, right into the rim. A sweet cherry juice nose with a tiny hint of burnt rubber. Full of sweet, slightly bitter, sloe fruit with some tannins showing in the mouth and a strong and lovely streak of acidity. A big and orange dominated aftertaste, full of cheek-gripping tannins but initially dominated by an alcoholic burn. Lots of life and development ahead of this wine. 92/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
