2003 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 00:06 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Deep red with a slight rose colour to the rim. A little closed on the nose but with some attractive strawberry jam. An astonishing texture, satin smooth. Wonderful sweet fruit hiding ripe tannins and perfect levels of acidity. Fabulous sweet fruit on the finish which surround and almost hide the delicious tannins. Very elegant. 96/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
