1997 Quinta do Noval Silval

Post by AHB » 23:35 Sat 11 May 2013

Mid red and showing some evolution. Slightly tanky on the nose. Restrained entry, lots of sweetness but the tannins dominate the fruit; not well balanced at the moment. Shows promise but needs more time. 86/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
