The 2014 Vintage Port is part of our mini-vertical this issue. Sexy and delicious, this is pretty much ready to drink now, in theory. When first poured, it was a bit tight, but another look with decanting showed that it was ready to roll, needing no more time at all. If it’s not a terribly well-structured Port by Noval’s standards, it still has some at least. The good news is that the flavors have evolved a little, justifying my initial optimism. My first look had the flavor profile showing overly dry and a little washed out. Now, there’s fruit too-at least some. This will never be a particularly impressive Noval, but it should still drink well over a couple of decades, at least. Maybe it will surprise us in the end, but it is worth noting that it was blasted off the table by its siblings in this issue’s mini-vertical, seeming duller, weaker and more stolid.
A rare declaration of a small volume due to director Christian Seely finding sufficient harmony, finesse and elegance to match the rich and wild Douro flavours. This is surprisingly seductive now, but has tannins for the long haul.
TOP 100 CELLAR SELECTIONS 2017 - This beautifully perfumed wine has all the tannins that will allow it to age over many decades. It also offers the rich blackberry, dark plum and great structure that will support that aging. As so often, Noval has released a vintage when other major producers have held back. But this powerful wine fully justifies the decision. Drink from 2025 for the fruit, 2030 for the complexity.
