Inky purplish-red and nearly opaque, with a sweet plum and grapey aromatic profile. Densely packed with boysenberry and plump purple fruit that is lightly laced with licorice. Full-bodied, and expansive on the palate with a great tannin structure and fabulous length on the finish. A distinctive Noval and with their third big VP in a row, this Shipper is clearly back on track and at the top of their game. One of the better wines of the 2000 crop.

The saturated blue/purple/black-colored 2000 Vintage Port reveals a distinctive bouquet of graphite, creme de cassis liqueur, licorice, and spice. Sweet tannin, full body, and outstanding concentration provide an impressive entry on the palate. Notions of chocolate make an appearance in the long finish of this sweet, lush, precocious effort. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2030.

One of the vintageandrsquo;s standouts, the 2000 Quinta do Noval is incredibly rich and intense, with a density that made me think I should reach for a spoon. Chocolate and coffee, prune and date aromas; plum cake flavors. Despite the richness, there is a superb backbone of acidity and ripe tannins that suggests peak maturity is probably two decades or more away.

One of the vintage’s standouts, the 2000 Quinta do Noval is incredibly rich and intense, with a density that made me think I should reach for a spoon.

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose has complexity and power in combination - a sure sign of a title contender. Despite this apparently heavyweight nature, however, we have immediately obvious elegance on the palate. This is underpinned by fine tannins and piles of dark fruits. And enveloping it all is a creamy mouthfeel which builds in intensity.
