Quinta Do Noval Port Blend Porto Vintage 1962

Member Review by Roy Hersh:

I have had this wine on several occasions and IMHO, have always considered it a mediocre Nacional. This was the first bottle of the '62 to show me a different picture. Light to medium ruby in color with a bricking meniscus, the nose showed beautifully with strawberry and licorice dominating the aromas but with highlights of sweet cedar and vanilla that added a nice seasoning. Smooth and delicate on the palate this was a textural delight. Very refined and offering up an extremely long, decadent finish. It's at peak now.

Quinta do Noval is situated in the very heart of the Douro valley, in the Cima Corgo, just two kilometres from the small town of Pinhão. As you approach the entrance to the quinta from Pinhão, you will see the famous broad terraces of Quinta do Noval on the right. The Quinta, which is principally situated in the valley of the small Pinhao river, a tributary of the Douro, has approximately 145 hectares of vines, ranging in altitude from 100 metres, at the level of the Pinhao river, to 350 metres at the summit of the valley. The Quinta is approached by a long drive, covered by trellised vines. This is the first view of the quinta that you see as you drive up. Read less
