1967 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 22:42 Wed 07 Jan 2015

Deep red, mature but still with plenty of youth; 70%. Wonderful nose, full of sweet flowers and soft nutmeg biscuits. Lovely palate presence, big and rich flavours balanced by perfect levels of sweetened acidity; still some soft tannins giving a dry edge to the flavours. Great depth and complexity. A soft candied touch to the aftertaste, then a big, long finish of great duration. Really fine winter port - deep and concentrated with a great complexity. Very fine. 94/100. Drunk 03-Dec-14. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
