NV Quinta do Noval 10YO Tawny (Bottled 2016)

Post by AHB » 21:43 Sun 16 Apr 2017

Bottled 2016. A mature brick red colour, 30% opaque. Little showing on the nose. Rather empty initially on the palate; then a little coffee and caramel infused with lavender. Modest acidity and some tannins hiding in the coffee leads to an aftertaste of milk coffe and a long finish of bitter-sweet kumquat in with the coffee. Disappointing. 81/100. Drunk 01-Mar-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
