2011 Quinta do Noval Nacional

Post by AHB » 18:02 Sun 18 Aug 2013

220 cases made. Pure purple. Lovely ripe nose, full of flower perfume. Beautiful balance and elegance on the palate with sweet fruit and a powerful acidity. A long finish combining perfectly elegance and power. This is a very fine port. 96-98. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
