2009 Quinta do Noval LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 21:25 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Bottled unfiltered in 2015. Deep purple colour with a narrow rim. Restrained on the nose with soft, gentle black and purple fruit. Powerful entry with a big impact, bringing fruit and round tannins. Lovely mid-palate fruit, tasting of soft raspberries offset by a green peppercorn tannin but all with a hint of floral perfume. Green and chewy aftertaste and a long green bell-pepper finish. Balanced and fruity, this is very enjoyable. 89/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
