1995 Porto da Silva LBV
An occasional label used by Noval for bottlings of purchased grapes. Only 250 cases of this wines was made and all was shipped to the UK.

Dark in colour and young looking in appearance; youthful blackcurrant nose. Young and fruity in the mouth, still gently tannic. Dry aftertaste, tannic impact on the cheeks. Good length. This is a very nice wine. 86/100. Drunk 17 Dec 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
