1966 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port Nacional
Producer: Quinta do Noval
Grape Type: Port Blend
96(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , October 2012
Medium red. Ineffable perfume of strawberry, mocha, coffee and burnished wood and Cuban cigar tobacco tones, lifted by a floral topnote. Wonderfully thick, even viscous, but with terrific acid cut accentuating the wine's inner-mouth aromatic character. The combination of layered texture and energy is captivating. Finishes with great subtle persistence, late-arriving tannins and a mounting smoky quality. Fabulous now but this is still evolving and should go on for another few decades.
