1998 Quinta do Noval Silval

Post by AHB » 21:49 Wed 28 May 2014

Intense colour, deep red and opaque. Rather subdued on the nose with a little gentle fruit. Silky texture and flavours of brown sugar, fruit and bitter dry tannins. Medium-bodied overall, with persistent tannins and fruit - and lots of brown sugar. Sweet plums and substantial tannins on the aftertaste and finish. Very chewy port! 89/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
