User Reviews for Quinta Do Noval Silval 91jg

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright ruby. High-pitched, very ripe aromas of blackberry, spicecake, licorice pastille and rose petal, with a whiff of brandy. Impressively tactile and concentrated, with a three-dimensional texture to the rich flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Distinctly high-pitched, even a bit youthfully aggressive, but wonderfully pure wine. Finishes broad and long, with lovely sweetness and impressive grip.

On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and rock solid with sappy fruit at the core, with ripe, beautifully-integrated tannins, tangy acids, great focus and a very long, pure and palate-staining finish. This is made in a more forward style that will not insist on long aging before it begins to drink brilliantly, but it will have no difficulties aging for at least the next thirty-five years. A lovely example of the vintage...91" JG 10/12
