Product Overview

The vineyards that produce the grapes for port wine cling to the steep hillsides in the winding valleys of the Douro River in Northern Portugal. In the heart of this beautiful region lie the vineyards of Quinta do Noval, where great Port has been produced since 1715. Matured in wood, this port is a blend of the finest wines with an average age of 20 years. An elegant bouquet reminiscent of dried fruits and almonds beautifully mellowed by age, this wine combines the finesse of maturity with a voluptuous nutty character.

95 Points - Wine Spectator
"This is a shade or two darker and richer than its peers, with warm toffee, hazelnut cream, roasted vanilla, cinnamon and walnut husk notes leading the way, backed by halva, pistachio oil and dried fig details. Lush through the finish, with the walnut hint lingering long enough for all the elements to fall in line. An exotic tawny. Drink now. 140 cases imported." -JM, 6/30/18

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a bar-top cork and 132 grams per liter of residual sugar. Gloriously fresh and completely alive, this adds an extra layer of depth and concentration of flavor to the 10 Year Old, of course, but that's not the main attraction here. This has all of Noval's typical grace and elegance while the complexity level is nicely above average. Then, its bright demeanor makes its fruit lifted and drives the medley of flavors home. It persists nicely, becoming something to contemplate as well as enjoy. This is a bit on the pricey side for a 20, at least judging from the list price, but it was also one of my favorites here. I don't want to be a broken record, but remember that aged tawnies should be drunk a bit cool. This was brilliant around 58-60 degrees Fahrenheit, boring around 72." -MS, 12/30/16
