2007 Quinta do Noval vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:31 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Deep red and with no purple, opaque. Floral nose, a little closed; what there is is dominated by lavender. Thick texture, little immediate fruit but then a wave of fruit and tannins explodes over the palate. Dry aftertaste of ripe blackcurrants. A massive finish. Really impressive. 92+/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
