2003 Quinta do Noval vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:28 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Deep red colour, solid rim, opaque centre. Lovely nose, so full of orange blossom but with a tone of minerality included. Soft and silky texture; surprisingly fruit forward still with lovely baby fat and great ripe tannins. A delicious, delightful finish that fades away gently. Still not closed down and still very approachable. 91/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
