1974 Quinta do Noval Colheita

Post by AHB » 20:47 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Bottled 2005. Golden brown, slightly hazy, 40% opaque. Powerful VA on the nose with lots of nail varnish. A sweet but lovely mandarin acidity. There is nice development and complexity on the palate with a delicious spiciness and a slight harshness. This leads to a big, long orange finish of good length and a sticky ending. This is nice port, if slightly too sweet. 88/100. Drunk 22-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
