NV Quinta do Noval 20YO Tawny (Bottled 2013)

Post by AHB » 23:35 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled 2013. Chestnut red, 20% opaque. Developed colheita nose, very pronounced. Modest texture on entry with a good dose of acidity driving a mouthful of dried pineapple, lychee and sour apricots. The palate is lovely even though it arrives very late. A pleasant after taste and a delicious long finish of brown sugar and grapefruit. 90/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
