2008 Quinta do Noval

Post by DRT » 08:37 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

A good strong, deeply coloured wine with an intense blackcurrant nose. Very smooth and mouth-filling entry with lots of dark fruits and grip. Elegant and very well balanced with a long and complex finish with a hint of lemon. A very good vintage port for the long term. 93 points.
