2003 Quinta do Noval Nacional vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:20 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deep magenta red, opaque at the centre. Still with lots of youthful grapes and blueberries on the nose. Massive opulence in the mouth with lovely sweet blueberry fruit but very chunky tannins. Fortunately the tannins and fruit are in harmony and so the tannins do not dominate. A big aftertaste, long -lasting and full of sweet grapes. 94/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
