2007 Quinta do Noval LBV (Single Vineyard)

Post by AHB » 23:34 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottling date not disclosed. Deep red, mature tone but no bricking. Opaque at the centre with a medium rim. Baked red fruit on the nose with a fresh redcurrant tone. Sweet, elegant and balanced entry that has a nice silky texture. The baked fruit comes through on the mid-palate with the fruit dominating over the fresh acidity. The tannins are faint and slightly green, but not in an unpleasant way. There is a lovely aftertaste and a finish full of fresh spring onions. This is a medium-weight port that is smooth and tasty. 86/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
