The Quinta do Noval 1970 Vintage Port is a classic. Generally the 1970 Vintage Ports are, rather like 1970 Bordeaux, classic, slightly underrated and gorgeous. Classically defined wines that will age wonderfully, they are something of an 'insider's vintage'. The Quinta do Noval 1970 Vintage Port is hugely powerful yet elegant and refined, and is loaded with blackberries, coffee, mint and raspberries before a long, complex finish comes in. It's drinking wonderfully now and has a long, great future ahead.
