Intensely powerful and concentrated, these ports are perfectly adapted to age in bottle, and will mature gracefully over decades.

Details

The 2011 Vintage Port hasn’t been seen in a while. It begins our mini-vertical this issue. Showing rich and gorgeous fruit, this is pure, young and elegant. There is still plenty of power here, but decanting a small portion for about three hours gave me some hope that it would be approachable a bit sooner than anticipated. Noval has mid-palate finesse all the time-so, too, here. It makes this very graceful, despite the power and the first lush impression. The pure power does not detract from the feeling of elegance at all, as this comes together well. Dried herbs, eucalyptus and a long finish make this special, the complexity on the finish sealing the deal. This is early in this wine’s evolution, but it is beginning to open its eyes and peek out at the world.
Vibrant, with luscious yet elegant mineral-infused flavors of dark currant, ripe cherry, green fig and raspberry. Shows ample pepper notes, with the tannins offering plenty of muscle and grip on the long, silky finish. Complex and restrained. Best from 2022 through 2047. 800 cases imported. ?KM
A powerful, concentrated wine, full of dark tannins, ripe fruit and rich texture. This is a wine based on a solid structure-very firm in character while still allowing the gorgeous fruits to express themselves. It’s obviously destined for long-term aging. - Cellar Selection

More Info

As one of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is unique in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard. As Robert Parker writes in his 2005 book, The World’s Greatest Wine Estates: ”Quinta do Noval is unusual among the great traditional Port houses in that it emphasizes the importance of the vineyard. The aim is to produce classic Vintage Ports that are harmonious and elegant expressions of Quinta do Noval’s terroir. Strict selection in the vineyard, low yields, and strict selection again in the tasting room result in a small production.
