- Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2007 Product #26960 (In Stock)
The 2005 earned a strong Wine Spectator 93 point rating, but in the 2007 vintage, this is even better. Very much in the Quinta do Noval style, with masses of dark plum, blackberry, and black raspberry fruit accented by a touch of bitter chocolate that are lifted by impeccable acidity and firm, almost crisp, tannins. A dose of melted licorice emerges on the long, juicy finish. Yummy.

Beautiful stuff to cellar, but hard to resist right now.
"The 2011 Quinta do Noval has wonderful precision on the nose with blackberry, cassis, intriguing flinty notes and a whiff of smoke. It might not possess the power of the Nacional but it has freshness to spare. That comes through on the beautifully composed palate, which is underpinned by fine tannins that lend it a silky smooth mouthfeel. There is real intensity here, but it is very controlled with superb minerality on the finish. Excellent."Wine Advocate 94-96 points
