2005 Quinta do Noval Silval

Post by AHB » 21:48 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Deep red, slightly scarlet on the rim. A gentle nose of stewed blackcurrants, lively but quite dense. Delightful entry, clear and fresh blackcurrant fruit with a mouthfilling presence. Big levels of blackcurrants and soft tannins. The big acidity is perfectly moulded and balanced. The aftertaste is slow and reluctant to deliver but eventually leads to a flavoursome and chewy finish. Very enjoyable - a good mid-term cellar defender. 88/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
