1974 Quinta do Noval Colheita

Post by g-man » 16:32 Fri 21 Dec 2007

First time trying a colheita and I must say I was impressed.
This was at the restaurant and I got it by the glass, the bottle was already half gone and asking the waiter that it was open two days previously.

Hot on the nose but a very sweet delicate slight burnt sugar/caramel.

Tastes of orange zest, candied fruit, toffee with a burst of cinnamon spices.

Great minute long finish of spicy walnuts that ends in a slight bitterness of a fine cigar.

93/100 (if it wasn't hot on the nose this would be a 94 pter).
