Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Quinta do Noval Black Ruby Port

Cockburn's Fine Ruby Port exudes a vibrant and youthful ruby-red hue, capturing the essence of its lively character. The nose is a celebration of red fruit abundance, with cherries and raspberries taking center stage, accompanied by a subtle floral hint that adds a touch of brightness. Beneath lies a whisper of spice, offering a lively and approachable olfactory experience.

On the palate, this Fine Ruby Port unfolds a burst of fruity richness. Juicy red berries, dominated by cherries and cranberries, dance harmoniously with a hint of black pepper, creating a flavor profile that is both spirited and inviting. The wine's youthful vigor is reflected in its lively texture, and the finish is a playful cadence, leaving a lingering impression of the initial fruit explosion.

Critic Ratings

Wine & Spirits Review - Rated 91:
Christian Seely recently introduced this wine in New York as a rethinking of the super-premium, multivintage Porto style. Black replaces LB, Noval's former entry in this range, and uses top-quality fruit to create a soft, accommodating texture. The aromas are purple-black while the flavors are pure black cherry. Acidity spices it up and adds to the juiciness of the finish. It's plump in the middle and supple all the way through, ending on fruit-skin tannin and a touch of chocolate from oak. At the level of many of the region's best LBVs, this wine may become a staple for a new generation of Port drinkers.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 90:
'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.
