ROBERT PARKER RATING: 95
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 1994 Vintage Port may be the finest regular vintage port I have tasted from this house in decades. Sadly, the production was absurdly small (approximately 800 cases) as the new owners, France's AXA, want to make a qualitative statement - immediately. Opaque ruby/purple-colored, with fabulous purity and richness, full body, moderate sweetness, layers of jammy fruit, and well-integrated alcohol. There is some tannin in the finish, but this is a large-scaled, authoritatively flavored as well as elegant example of port that needs cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2035.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 95
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Muscular and ripe, showing fabulous potential. The best Noval in decades, it's full-bodied, with a fruity character, well-integrated, chewy tannins and a medium finish. A long-term wine that needs age to mellow.
Quinta do Noval is situated in the very heart of the Douro valley, in the Cima Corgo, just two kilometers from the small town of Pinhão. As you approach the entrance to the Quinta from Pinhão, you will see the famous broad terraces of Quinta do Noval on the right. The Quinta, which is principally situated in the valley of the small Pinhao river, a tributary of the Douro, has approximately 145 hectares of vines, ranging in altitude from 100 meters, at the level of the Pinhao river, to 350 meters at the summit of the valley. The Quinta is approached by a long drive, covered by trellised vines.
