|Brand||Quinta do Noval|
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.

Powerfully rich, delivering plush fig, dark cherry and plum confit flavors. Very silky, with plenty of grip and a long, fruity finish filled with effusive pepper and spice notes.
