Quinta do Noval produced a stunning Port in the great 1997 Port vintage - perhaps the finest Port of the vintage.

“...the greatest Quinta do Noval I have ever tasted. The wine of the vintage, this black/purple-colored port boasts fabulous aromatics (espresso, blackberries, licorice, tar, and flowers), followed by massive concentration, full body,...”

“Black color. Loads of ripe berry, mineral and wet earth character, with a hint of green tobacco. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a supersolid core of tannins. Long, long finish. The greatest Quinta do Noval in decades.” Wine Spectator

“...aromas of crystallized dark berries, flowers, licorice & bitter chocolate. Very dense & medium-sweet, with superb concentration of flavor and lovely pliancy. Captivating hint of cocoa powder. Finishes with big but thoroughly ripe tannins.” Stephen Tanzer
