2008 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 21:32 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Deep red, almost opaque purple. Violets on the nose, with lovely fruit. Balanced entry with lovely soft fruit that eventually allows the tannins to show - and they are big (but ripe)! Fabulous and huge finish. An amazing wine. 92/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
