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.
This wine collection, containing just over three thousand bottles, arrives from an avid wine collector who started in the 1980s. This collector toured the world with a personal goal of learning as possible about the world’s top wine regions; eventually becoming a Certified Specialist of Wine with the Society of Wine Educators. Most wines in this collection were sourced directly from local wine stores or imported directly from the wine producer. Wines were stored in a controlled environment with dual refrigeration units.
