2007 Noval Silval vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:51 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Deep red with a solid rim and opaque centre. Mineral dominated nose, over the sweet fruit. The characteristic softness from a Noval wine on entry. The tannins are balanced, but mostly hidden behind the fruit. This is a very fruit driven wine with the acidity gentle but sufficient. Sweet fruit dominates the aftertaste and tannins on the finish. 86/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
