Expert Review

A well-balanced tawny port that shows off some of the complexity of older ports without losing the fruity qualities of young ports, Quinta Do Noval 10 Year Old Tawny Port is one of our Best Picks. This port is made using centuries-old techniques and is even trodden by foot before fermentation so that the juice can be pressed out without damaging the grapes. After fermentation, the wine is moved to oak casks and aged for an average of ten years before blending. The result is a dependable port with flavors dried pear, cherry, apricot, and spice. The finish is dry, tannic, and yet sweet enough to stand on its own as a sweet after-dinner drink. Noval can be served at room temperature, which brings out the subtleties, or slightly chilled, which accentuates the fruitiness.Rating: 4/5
