2012 Quinta do Noval

Post by AHB » 22:40 Sun 30 Apr 2017

Dense and dark purple in colour with a narrow rim. A fabulous nose full of cornflowers and crab apples. The palate is smooth and full of fresh complex fruits. Lots of grass shows in the cherry and blueberry fruit backed by great tannins. Fruity and chewy on the finish, which is truly amazing. 93/100. Drunk 04-Apr-17. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
