Quinta Do Noval Red Blend Douro 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1997 vintage port is the greatest Quinta do Noval I have ever tasted. The<br/>wine of the vintage, this black/purple-colored port boasts fabulous aromatics<br/>(espresso, blackberries, licorice, tar, and flowers), followed by massive<br/>concentration, full body, and levels of depth and richness. Gorgeously sweet,<br/>stunningly concentrated and full-bodied, this profound vintage port should be<br/>legendary. Quinta do Noval's production normally approaches 4,000 cases, but in<br/>1997, only 1200 cases were produced, so it will be extremely limited in<br/>availability. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Jan 2000)

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
