The bright aromatics, freshness and balance may be enjoyed at anytime.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Shows beautiful aromas of sliced plum and peach, with raspberry jam. Medium-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Refined and pretty. This is a new Port from Noval that is supposed to attract new consumers and please old ones. Might work. Drink now. –JS

(WA90) 'Black' is a new blend produced from classic varieties that do not make it into the Quinta do Noval vintage. There are ripe blackberries, tar, smoke and orange liqueur on the nose that takes time to open. The palate is medium-bodied, very sleek on the entry, fleshy black fruits, sloe, spice and just a hint of white pepper, leading to a very focused finish. Drink now-2020
BLACK is a revolutionary new style of port that showcases the same legendary terroir as Quinta do
Noval's great vintage ports.
