2007 Quinta do Noval LBV

Post by AHB » 22:37 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Deep red, youthful and opaque. Gentle on the nose with grassy fruit that shows well. Smooth in texture with sweet fruit leading the firm, dry tannins and giving a nice balance. The dry tannins hold firm on the aftertaste and support a huge dry / sour cherry finish. Very impressive, with a nice mouthfeel and presence. A very young LBV which will reward time in the cellar. 90/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
