2012 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port

$250.00

Quinta do Noval is an astonishing wine estate, with a rare combination of deep history and innovation. Founded in 1715, it has changed hands just twice over 300 years. The most important thing to understand about Quinta do Noval is, that unlike the other famous names in the world of Port, Noval is a single estate, a single vineyard, a producer that controls every step of production from vine to bottle.

Description

94 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Since this was last seen, it has come along beautifully. It is actually richer, lusher and more seductive than the 2011, which focuses on power, while still showing admirable mid-palate finesse. That said, it really isn’t as concentrated, and it certainly is not as well structured. It is still an unusually sexy Noval with a hedonistic overlay. It is pretty approachable. You may not conclude it is the best of the group, but everyone’s going to adore it.

94 points James Suckling
Aromas of cloves, black pepper, tar, blackberries, licorice and slate. Full body with chewy, velvety tannins. Rich, powerful, layered and beautiful.
