Food Pairings for Quinta Do Noval Port Blend Porto Vintage
Light orange-pinkish hue showing lots of evolution. Christian mentioned that there was too much produced in terms of extraordinary yields from this particular vintage. The 1963 is showing pretty mature, mostly Tawny nuances of figs and caramel with some alcohol on the unimpressive and hot finish that had a medicinal edge to the aftertaste. It was my least favorite wine of the tasting.
