The wine is clear and bright with a pale tawny colour and dense legs. The nose is clean and fully developed, showing medium+ intensity aromas of toasted almonds, walnuts, candied cherries, plum jam, clove, cinnamon and hints of anise. The wine is sweet in the mouth with a medium acidity. It has medium- tannins and a high warm alcohol. It has a medium+ body and pronounced intensity flavours of toasted almonds, walnuts, candied, cherries, plum jam, cinnamon and hints of anise. The finish is medium+.
It is an outstanding quality wine showing the typicity of a 10 years old Tawny Port, with a very good flavour concentration and a nice finish, and it has a very nice complexity provided by maturation. Drink now, the wine will not improve in the bottle since it is already fully developed.

(NV Quinta do Noval Ten Year Old Tawny Port) Latest release. An almost floral, nutty nose. The palate is quite rich, nutty and powerful. A smooth mouthfeel, and good balance. There's still a little tannic grip in the background. Drink now.
