The NV 10 Year Tawny from Quinta do Noval sports a medium ruby color as well as rich, medium to full-bodied notes of figs, white raisins, burnt caramel and a kiss of smoke. It’s ripe, nicely balanced, and stays light and drinkable, with tons of character. This cuvée is made from Tinta Toriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca brought up all in oak.
The NV 10 Year Old Tawny was bottled in 2016 with a bar-top cork and 106 grams per liter of residual sugar. Medium in body--well, it's a 10, not a 40--this has fine freshness and perfect balance. The juicy, delicious finish is irresistible and has more intensity of flavor than most 10 Year Olds. Although I tend to look first for freshness in this category, it is also nice to find some complexity and intensity of flavor, too, as here. This is nicely done. This showed way better at 58 degrees Fahrenheit than it did at 70. The last time I saw Noval's age-indicated tawnies, I was very impressed. Nothing has changed my mind. These are among my favorites--concentrated, classic and focused. (MS)
