Full-bodied medium sweet with chewy velvety tannins and a long finish. Grips your mouth. A balanced and caressing Noval. Best after 2012. 1500 cases made. -JS

The 2000 Quinta Do Noval Vintage 96 is much stricter on the nose compared to the 1997 with very pure blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry fruit mixed with cigar box and flinty scents. It does not quite have the presence of the 1997 but it has focus and breeding and, wow, leave it aside for several minutes and it repays you with intoxicating candied orange peel scents.

Drink 2015-2040. Tasted January 2014. - NEAL MARTIN

Chocoate and coffee prune and date aromas; plum cake flavors. Despite the richness there is a superb backbone of acidity and ripe tannins...

Wonderfully concentrated very sweet silky and suave; like an elixir of dark berries. As it opened in the glass the superb underlying structure became obvious. Finishes with big building extremely fine tannins and superb length and grip. 94(+?)? points
