2004 Quinta do Noval vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:30 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Very dark in colour, opaque with a magenta core. Floral, blackcurrant nose. Satin texture on the palate, very smooth. Very dry tannins dominate over the fruit - but there is plenty of fruit and acidity when these fade. Big - but late developing - palate presence to this wine. A dry aftertaste of very good length. Still as impressive as it was when last tasted 2 years ago. 90/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
