2013 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 21:20 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Medium density of colour, crimson in tone. Little on the nose, just some faint hints of blackcurrant. Rounded fruit entry, with tannins nicely integrated into the sweet cherry and black plum. There is soft acidity under the fruit and tannin. The finish is gentle and flavoursome with a good persistence and finishes with a lovely burst of flavour. 88/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
