2014 Quinta do Noval Late Bottled Vintage Port

Port | Port Blend
"The 2014 Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend from typical grapes like Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Sousão, aged for five years in casks. It is nicely aromatic, with a touch of eucalyptus. There is still a pretty reasonable expression of fruit in this difficult vintage—it seems classic... There is a fresh feel and notable power—the structure is far ahead of and better than the fruit. You can see why Noval is releasing a 2014 while many others are releasing the 2015s. The structure is downright impressive, and this needed the time in cask. It tightens slowly but inevitably as it airs out. The fruit flattens a bit at the same time, though. This is still a pretty nice achievement in the vintage."
