Quinta do Noval Colheita 2000
|Brand||Quinta do Noval|
Wine EnthusiastA single vintage tawny, this is gorgeously nutty with dried fig and raisin flavors while keeping plenty of freshness and orange zest flavors. The wine is rich, full in the mouth, intense, hinting at the wood in which it was aged and bringing in spice and pepper as well as more aromatic fruits. Like all tawnies, it is ready to drink.
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Colheita Port is a Tawny bottled in 2015. This young Tawny is gorgeous and punches just a bit above its weight. Showing more complexity than many at this age, it has fine concentration of flavor on the finish. There's enough acidity to pound in that flavor and it finishes with some intensity, too. This is very tasty and a lovely new release whose flavor will make you drool.
Wine SpectatorOffers maple, butterscotch and ripe cherry flavors, with plenty of dried citrus and nutmeg notes. Seductively smoky, presenting a long finish of dried apricot and fig compote. Suave and supple. Drink now through 2020. 120 cases imported.
