Very deep coloured. Incredibly elegant, fresh nose with wonderful raspberry, blackberry and cherry fruit purity. Astonishingly aromatic and floral.

Astonishingly aromatic and floral. The palate has concentrated, smooth, elegant fruit with lovely structure and poise, as well as a hint of mint freshness.

What a nose. Ripe fruit with chocolate blackberries and raisins. Full-bodied and medium sweet with velvety tannins. Finish goes on and on. Layered and wonderful. Best after 2014. 1500 cases imported. –JS

The Quinta do Noval Vintage 2003 has a gorgeous raisin, fig and clove-scented bouquet with more freshness than the whole of Pomerol combined. As Christian Seely quipped, “the vines are accustomed to the heat”. It unfolds in the glass, gaining vigor, if not complexity, with touches of leather, California raisin and dried flower emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins, dishing out lovely ripe and intense blackberry, leather, sage, tobacco and white- pepper notes. In this vintage, the Noval Vintage does not possess the breeding or the bravura of the Nacional and yet it remains a very impressive Port – a success for the vintage. Drink 2016-2030+ Tasted January 2014. - NEAL MARTIN

Dense sweet and pliant with outstanding precision and depth of flavor. Like the Silval this boasts a seductively creamy texture. The explosive mounting finish offers a fine dusting of ripe suave tannins and great breadth. Deceptively easy to taste today owing to its finesse but it's hard to believe that it won't shut down in bottle in the near future. This wine features a particularly high percentage of touriga nacional.
