Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 2013
95 pts Wine Spectator - Sweet, intense blackberry and cherry nose is quite floral with some raspberry jam notes. The palate is really pretty and elegant with firm tannins under the bright cherry and berry fruit. It is more red fruits than black, and it has a fine spiciness. Fresh, showing great potential. An elegant, Burgundian expression of Port.

17,5 points - Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 2013

The wine appears very dense, loaded in colour, notes of dark chocolate, black fruits and was combining structure with a lot of finesse. Very textured, Rico of tannins, great presence in the mouth with very long.

95 points - Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 2013

The 2013 Vintage Port is a blend of 20% Touriga Nacional; 10% Tinta Roriz and 70% old vines (of which Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz predominated, the winery noted), and it was aged for 18 months in wood. It comes in at 94 grams per liter of residual sugar. This 2013 completes Noval's unusual trilogy of declared Vintage Ports in 2011-2013. The quality justifies the declarations. Showing more concentration than the fresh 2012, also reviewed, this is pointed, powerful and intense, with serious grip on the finish. The initial impression of lushness fades quickly, because this is all about the power just now. You shouldn't even think of approaching it now. This will need a consumer with a cellar and some patience. That patience should be rewarded in time. All that said, by the end of the week, after some six days open, it actually started becoming more approachable. It wasn't quite as intense as the 2011 or as open as the 2012. Falling in the middle, it will certainly need time to come into full balance and become more expressive. It will reward your patience.

95 points - Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 2013

Noval has often in the past released a Vintage Port in years when other producers hold back. And, as in the past, the release is justified. For this is an impressive, dense and seriously age worthy Port. While it has plenty of perfumed jammy red fruits and balanced acidity, it is the dark tannic character that will sustain this wine for decades. It could be drunk now for its fruit, although that would be a shame. Better to wait until 2030 and longer.

Powerful and rich, with deep flavors of crushed red plum, dark cherry and dried raspberry, featuring a shading of graphite and smoke. Presents luscious spicy details on the finish. Drink now through 2045.
