The NV Black cuvée comes half from estate vineyards (the rest is sourced from the Cima Corgo region in the Douro Valley) and is aged two years in larger oak and stainless-steel vats. At 20 bucks, it’s a terrific, forward, sexy Port offering lots of currants, raisins, candied olives, and dried herb aromas and flavors. It’s worth buying.
'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. Tasted April 2010.

This is made from Quinta do Noval's younger vines. The back label urges us to serve it chilled as an aperitif or with dark chocolate at any time. Dark crimson. High-toned and rather refined on the nose. Then very sweet and smooth on the palate. Builds on the finish, which turns dry in the end. Pretty damned good! Very appetising and ready to enjoy already. Clean and fresh with, yes, a hint of violets.
A juicy, fruity style, offering good cut to the dark plum and cocoa powder flavors. Features chocolate-covered raisin notes that emerge on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported. (KM)
