2000 Quinta do Noval Colheita

Post by AHB » 21:15 Sun 29 May 2016

Bottled January 2014. Deep red in colour, 50% opaque. Strong nose of typical colheita smells, a touch of VA and powerful pistachio paste. Smooth texture with vanilla pods and strawberries cut by a powerful acidity. Oranges on the late palate, big in flavour. Fruity and chewy finish, great length with a hint of tannins. 90/100. 22-Apr-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
