2003 Quinta do Noval Nacional vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:39 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Deep red, losing a little colour on the rim. Rustic / farmyard nose. Hollow entry, not well balanced although generous and jammy fruit comes through late with a massive dose of acidity and tannins. An enormous finish that lasts for ages. Needs much more time in the cellar. Very difficult to score today. 92+/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
