Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Late Bottled Vintage Port, a typical Douro blend, was bottled in 2016. This is brilliant. Sappy, intensely concentrated, remarkably complex and beautifully structured, has plenty of room to grow in the cellar, too. It is young, unevolved and capable of development. The complexity that it has now, with a trace of herbs, rhubarb and generally classic Port flavours, is a hallmark, but that will increase and become more varied with age. This reeks of potential. Noval is one of my favourite LBV producers and this is a fine moment for it. With a few years of bottle age, it might even seem better as it acquires more complexity." This 2011 Single-Vineyard Late Bottled Port is a beauty. It earned a rating 93-point review from Wine Advocate who quotes a price of $27 a real bargain for its quality.
It is a port of only one harvest, produced in quality years that allow the development of full body, aroma and palate. Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesca and Touriga Nacional are the major grape varieties, and all grapes are trodden by foot and fermented in the lageres at Quinta do Noval. The wine is then aged 4 ½ years in old wooden vats of various sizes.
A deep, rich brick red color, the nose is ripe, vigorous and fruity. The palate delivers a mouthful of fresh red fruits, with a solid tannic structure and a long, harmonious finish.
