1994 Quinta do Noval vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:25 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Served blind. Ex-cellars. Deep red and with a solid rim, opaque centre. Quite youthful in appearance. Faint blackcurrants on the nose that grow stronger with a bit of warmth; lovely violets. Sweet fruit on the restarined entry. Subtle structure, but fabulus balance; the tannins are soft, the acidity is modest. The aftertaste is dominated by sweet violets but with a mouthwatering acidity. Great length. 93/100. Drunk 13 October 2011 with 6 hours decant.
