Product Overview

Black ruby-purple color, one of the darkest colors of the vintage. Superripe, high-pitched, rather brooding aromas of black and red berries, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Hugely rich, sweet and mouthfilling yet at the same time savory, with uncanny verve for such a thick, silky wine; darker in character than the Silval. This saturates every millimeter of the palate with black fruit and spice flavors. Is any other 2007 this dense, deep and ripe? A wine of great intensity and persistence. (Incidentally, there is no Quinta do Noval Nacional from vintage 2007, as this vineyard "just did not sing," in the words of managing director Christian Seely.)

94 Points - Wine Spectator
"A huge wine, with very prominent plum cake, fig paste and blackberry compote flavors taking the lead. Shows loads of grip, featuring hints of tobacco, ganache and chestnut that have started to peek out through the finish. A fleshy, powerful wine that is just starting to show what it has. Leave this be for a while.—Non-blind Quinta do Noval vertical (May 2018). Best from 2022 through 2042. 1,800 cases made, 500 cases imported." -JM, 2018

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2007 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is a star of the vintage. Dense purple-colored, it gives up an already complex aromatic array of lavender, Asian spices, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits with a hint of chocolate in the background. Plush and mouth-filling, this large-scaled Port manages an uncanny blending of elegance and power. Long and savory in the finish, it will continue to blossom for another 20+ years and drink well through its 50th birthday if not longer." -JSM, 2/26/10

92 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Ripe and juicy, a wine that wears its heart on its sleeve. It is perfumed, with the 2007 freshness and a fine layer of nutmeg coming through the blackberry juice flavor. For medium-term aging." -RV, 12/31/09
