Saturated black ruby to the rim. Sappy aromas of black cherry, minerals and roasted nuts. Wonderfully concentrated, very sweet, silky and suave; like an elixir of dark berries. As it opened in the glass, the superb underlying structure became obvious. Finishes with big, building, extremely fine tannins and superb length and grip.

Undurchsichtiges Purpur, wirkt so schwarz wie Tinte. Eine tiefe, dunkle, schwarzbeerige Frucht, die langsam aufsteigt: reife Heidelbeeren, schwarze Kirsche, getrocknete Pflaumen und Brombeerkonfitüre. Intensiv und lang am Gaumen. Samtige, reife Tannine sowie eine feine spürbare Mineralität im langen, nicht enden wollenden, schwarzbeerigen Finale.

Very fine young Port. Fascinating aromas of crushed fruit, tar and wet earth. Turns floral. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with chewy, velvety tannins and a long finish. Grips your mouth. A balanced and caressing Noval. Best after 2012.

A pure fruited wine, with an unusual touch of toast and new wood. The fruit is well structured with flavors of thyme and rosemary. This is a smooth, polished Port, which is definitely in a modern style of winemaking.

[Barrel tasting] Impressive aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral and dried flowers. Intense and deep. Full-bodied, very sweet and dense on the palate, with big, round tannins and a long finish.

Saturated deep ruby. Sweet aromas of black cherry, cassis, licorice, molasses, minerals, toffee and violet. Dense, sweet and pliant, with outstanding precision and depth of flavor. Like the Silval, this boasts a seductively creamy texture. The explosive, mounting finish offers a fine dusting of ripe, suave tannins and great breadth. Deceptively easy to taste today owing to its finesse, but itrsquo;s hard to believe that it wonrsquo;t shut down in bottle in the near future. This wine features a particularly high percentage of touriga nacional.

Noval's replanting in the 1990s included a high proportion of touriga nacional, which shows in this wine as a dynamic and resonant blueberry blue. There's also boysenberry, pomegranate, bosky cherry and schist. It's ornate and vibrant - the potent fruit suspended by the tannin, then exploding into luscious chocolate blackness; the finish is notably refreshing. With several days of air, this wine's massive extract takes on a slightly bitter edge, suggesting it may not be the longest lived of the great 2007s. Nevertheless it is one of the keepers - likely to reach its peak in the 30-year range and to coast for years beyond that.
