2014 Pintas

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Reddish-purple colour with fresh and harsh fruit on the nose. Pure fresh fruit on entry, backed by plenty of ripe and nutty tannins. Pure and fresh on the late palate. A huge, perfumed mouthful with great grip and an everlasting finish. Superb. 93-95/100. Tasted 07-Nov-16.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Was considering picking up a case of this. Interesting TN, and a great score.

Had the Pintas VP '14 twice and scored it 94 and 95 respectively (but I must confess I'm a great fan of Sandra's wines :D )

That's good to know, I'll probably get the case next week. I like their wines as well, both Port and DOC Douro.
