Bottle report: Excellent condition.

Quinta do Noval is situated in the breathtakingly unspoilt and wild Douro Valley in northern Portugal: where vineyards (or quintas) cling to precipitously steep hillsides. It is the only Portuguese-owned house to have made its name to any great extent in the British and US port market. And is, without doubt, one of the finest. This 2011 release is a fine offering

”…wonderful precision on the nose with blackberry, cassis, intriguing flinty notes and a whiff of smoke. It might not possess the power of the Nacional but it has freshness to spare. That comes through on the beautifully composed palate, which is underpinned by fine tannins that lend it a silky smooth mouthfeel. There is real intensity here, but it is very controlled with superb minerality on the finish. Excellent.”
