Port wine- 2007 - Quinta do Noval - Portugal - Region: Douro - Apellation: Douro - Touriga nacional - 750 ml.
"Black ruby-purple color, one of the darkest colors of the vintage. Superripe, high-pitched, rather brooding aromas of black and red berries, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Hugely rich, sweet and mouthfilling yet at the same time savory, with uncanny verve for such a thick, silky wine; darker in character than the Silval. This saturates every millimeter of the palate with black fruit and spice flavors. Is any other 2007 this dense, deep and ripe? A wine of great intensity and persistence. (Incidentally, there is no Quinta do Noval Nacional from vintage 2007, as this vineyard "just did not sing," in the words of managing director Christian Seely.)" "The 2007 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is a star of the vintage. Dense purple-colored, it gives up an already complex aromatic array of lavender, Asian spices, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits with a hint of chocolate in the background. Plush and mouth-filling, this large-scaled Port manages an uncanny blending of elegance and power. Long and savory in the finish, it will continue to blossom for another 20+ years and drink well through its 50th birthday if not longer. One of Oporto's famous names, Quinta do Noval decided not to produce its flagship Nacional bottling in the 2007 vintage. The two Ports it has chosen to release are first class in their own distinctive styles." -94 Points - Jay Miller- The Wine Advocate
