2001 Quinta do Noval Silval

Post by AHB » 21:47 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Deep red, 90% opaque on the centre but with a transparent rim. No purple, no bricking. Fresh fruit and flowers show on the subdued but lively nose. Sweet fruit, mostly black- and redcurrants, soft and fairly light on the palate. A touch watery but rescued by the soft tannins. Fragrant and lightweight. Fragrant finish of good length, even if a little subdued. Gentle and light port. 86/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
