Quinta do Noval is situated in the very heart of the Douro valley, in the Cima Corgo, just two kilometres from the small town of Pinhão. 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

Deep saturated ruby. Supersweet but vibrant aromas of crystallized dark berries, flowers, licorice and bitter chocolate. Very dense and medium-sweet, with superb concentration of flavor and lovely pliancy. Captivating hint of cocoa powder. Finishes w... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1997 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 750ml

The 1997 Nacional is a legend from this pre-phylloxera vineyard. The color is a saturated black/purple. The nose reveals floral scents intermixed with coffee blackberries tar cassis licorice and chocolate. Extremely full-bodied but less massive and seamless this spectacular Nacional will reach its plateau of maturity quickly where it will remain for 2-3 decades. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2040.

Not quite as great as the 100-point 94 but really superb. Black color with intense aromas of mineral blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied and very sweet with layers of big velvety tannins and a long long finish. Truly impressive. Best after 2009. 250 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.
