|Brand||Quinta do Noval|
Powerful elegant plenitude. Ripe complete and fine. Many layered fruit. Deep complex and long. Real expression of Nacional terroir. Just beginning to open up, but probably has a century of development before it.
The 2004 Quinta do Noval Nacional has a show-stopping bouquet that is cut from a completely different cloth than the 2004 Vintage. This is far more extravagant and decadent, with kirsch, camphor, incense and crushed violets exploding from the glass. You might think it was some super Barossa Syrah if you nosed it blind. The palate is intense with penetrating, citrus-fresh black currant and dark-plum fruit. It is has lovely caressing, slightly grainy textured, well-judged acidity and a composed, elegant finish. This is pure class, a hedonistic Nacional surfeit with swagger and style. Drink 2020-2050. Tasted January 2014.
