1994 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 10:39 Thu 26 Sep 2013

900 cases declared. Narrow rim, slight bricking and a slight cloudiness. Attractive nose of sweet crushed cherries in syrup. Sweet and smooth entry, with lots of ripe fruit giving a fabulous palate. The tannins support the fruit but never really dominate, the whole giving lots of layers of flavour and complexity. Tingling and lively finish, a huge length of mouthfilling intensity. Lots of black chocolate, birchwood and elegant aromatics. An amazing port which is a privilege to drink. 97/100. Drunk 16-Sep-13.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
