1997 Quinta do Noval Colheita

Post by AHB » 00:10 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Bottled 2014. Deep mahogany in colour, 60% opaque. Big and expressive nose of colheita - nutty and full of VA. Thick in texture with intense acidity; rich flavours of date and dried fig. The aftertaste is just as intense, long and powerful, with touches of coffee and tangerine. This has astonishing intensity for such a young colheita. 92/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
