Oporto, PortugalQuinta do Noval Black Port is a great introduction to this famous wine of the Douro Valley in Portugal. Replacing the LB Port in the Noval lineup, Black is a revolutionary new style of Port, with bright aromatics, freshness of fruit and great balance. Quinta do Noval lies in the Douro Valley in northern Portugal, with steep hillside vineyards along the river valley. This famous winery has produced great Port wines since 1715 and has bottled Noval LB Ports since the 1960's. The wine is traditionally made in granite lagares from the classic grape varieties of the Douro Valley. Robert Parker considers Quinta do Noval one of the top 3 Port houses and rated Noval Black 90 points. Wine & Spirits magazine rated Noval Black 91 points, considering it to be at the level of many of the region's best LBVs. We find it a true wine gem!Quinta do Noval Black Port is dark ruby in color with enticing aromas of black raspberry and lilacs. Rich and full-bodied, it offers bright acidity against flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, plum and chocolate. It tantalizes the palate on the lingering finish.Enjoy Quinta do Noval Black Port as a dessert wine all by itself or with chocolate, cheesecake or sweet cheeses.

This is a revolutionary new port from one of the world's legendary estates. Thanks to 15 years of work at the estate replanting and rebuilding the quality of fruit across the estate is unprecedented. This fruit is now the foundation for the Vintage Ports and, in other years, for Black. For this unique Port, all grapes harvested are crushed by foot in granite lagares and crushing is done in small lots for better control and to pinpoint quality. This effort allows Quinta do Noval to create a port wine that wholly emphasizes fruit with a focus on tremendous aromatics, beautiful balance, and transparent complexity. Enjoy now, no decanting or other stuffy, stodgy dramatics necessary!
