1964 Quinta do Noval Nacional

Post by DRT » 23:33 Fri 22 Jun 2007

Decanted 12 Hours

Slightly dusty/gassy nose which blew off quite quickly. Clear and bright brownish red colour with a smooth and thick mouth-feel. Treacle taste fading to a long mouth-watering finish of cherry which ended with a tingle of heat on the end of the tongue. Although enjoyable, I was disappointed in this wine given its provenance (purchased from Noval in VNG in 2005) and its hefty price tag. Well kept Nacional should be better than this.
