Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port displays a dark, inky color, with super-ripe, rich fruit, and spicy notes on the nose. It is extremely elegant, with lovely balance, big velvety tannins, and dense black fruit flavors. It has an extremely long, profound finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Black ruby-purple color, one of the darkest colors of the vintage. Superripe, high-pitched, rather brooding aromas of black and red berries, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Hugely rich, sweet and mouthfilling yet at the same time savory, with uncanny verve for such a thick, silky wine; darker in character than the Silval. This saturates every millimeter of the palate with black fruit and spice flavors. Is any other 2007 this dense, deep and ripe? A wine of great intensity and persistence."
96 Points

"A dynamic and resonant blueberry blue. There's also boysenberry, pomegranate, bosky cherry and schist. It's ornate and vibrant-the potent fruit suspended by the tannin, then exploding into luscious chocolate blackness; the finish is notably refreshing."
95 Points

"The 2007 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is a star of the vintage. Dense purple-colored, it gives up an already complex aromatic array of lavender, Asian spices, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits with a hint of chocolate in the background. Plush and mouth-filling, this large-scaled Port manages an uncanny blending of elegance and power. Long and savory in the finish, it will continue to blossom for another 20+ years and drink well through its 50th birthday if not longer."
94 Points

"Very complex, with intense aromas of squeezed tangerine, blackberry and blueberry. Full-bodied, medium sweet and chewy. Extracted yet balanced, with an intense fruity and grapey character. Tight and reserved on the finish. Best after 2015."
93 Points

"Ripe and juicy, a wine that wears its heart on its sleeve. It is perfumed, with the 2007 freshness and a fine layer of nutmeg coming through the blackberry juice flavor. For medium-term aging."
