2011 Quinta do Noval Nacional

Post by AHB » 10:47 Thu 26 Sep 2013

220 cases made. Intense and opaque, deep purple in colour. Pure blackcurrants on the lovely, floral nose. A wave of blackcurrant on entry, fabulously floral then intense ripe tannins that grow and grow. Wonderful aromatics, full of roses and lavender. Blackcurrant aftertaste, then a sudden wave of tannins grip and hold for an immense time. This is legendary port in its infancy. 97-99/100. Drunk 16-Sep-13
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
