BOW (9-)

Parker (93)

The dense 2003 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port displays an impenetrable black robe. Its profound aromatics exude notes of Damson plums, blackberries, fresh herbs, flowers, and hints of vanilla. Built for the long-haul, this refined wine reveals massive thickness, concentration, and depth. Its plummy character is redolent with black cherries, violets, pepper, and figs. Even after 4 days of air this intense effort was firmly backward (possibly even more so than immediately after opening!). Projected maturity: 2035-2055.

Winespectator / James Suckling (96)

Sauve and silky, with peppery overtones to the intense plum confit, dark currant, cherry and chocolate flavors, with hints of licorice. Vibrant, with plenty of youthful grip. The powerful finish is long and well-spiced.
