1994 - ROBERT PARKER: The 1994 Vintage Port may be the finest regular vintage port I have tasted from this house in decades. Sadly, the production was absurdly small (approximately 800 cases) as the new owners, France's AXA, want to make a qualitative statement - immediately. Opaque ruby/purple-colored, with fabulous purity and richness, full body, moderate sweetness, layers of jammy fruit, and well-integrated alcohol. There is some tannin in the finish, but this is a large-scaled, authoritatively flavored as well as elegant example of port that needs cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2035.
1995 - WINE SPECTATOR: Earthy, spicy and focused, this is quite savoury with lovely complexity and depth. Really like the savoury complexity, which integrates well with the spicy fruit. Superbly elegant with great complexity.
Quinta do Noval is one of the most evocative of names and the maker of the most famous of all Vintage Ports - Naçional.
