    Aromatic. Perfumed and gentle on the nose. Wonderfully smooth but with huge power underneath. (According to Christian Seely, this would been even better if we had tasted it from a 75cl bottle and not from a half bottle.) Very much more like wine than port - which is exactly what they are aiming for. (JH)

    Black color. Loads of ripe berry, mineral and wet earth character, with a hint of green tobacco. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a supersolid core of tannins. Long, long finish. The greatest Quinta do Noval in decades.

    Deep saturated ruby. Supersweet but vibrant aromas of crystallized dark berries, flowers, licorice and bitter chocolate. Very dense and medium-sweet, with superb concentration of flavor and lovely pliancy. Captivating hint of cocoa powder. Finishes with big but thoroughly ripe tannins and an explosive whiplash of flavor.

    The 1997 vintage port is the greatest Quinta do Noval I have ever tasted. The wine of the vintage, this black/purple-colored port boasts fabulous aromatics (espresso, blackberries, licorice, tar, and flowers), followed by massive concentration, full body, and levels of depth and richness. Gorgeously sweet, stunningly concentrated and full-bodied, this profound vintage port should be legendary. Quinta do Noval's production normally approaches 4,000 cases, but in 1997, only 1200 cases were produced, so it will be extremely limited in availability.
