1998 Quinta do Noval Silval

Post by AHB » 23:36 Sat 11 May 2013

Mid red, opaque. Stink on the nose. Soft and sweet entry, but a touch of the bottle stink. Shows surprisingly tannic making it less approachable than most other 1998s. Hot aftertaste. 84/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
