28 Feb 40 Year Port!
This is a big-dog 40 year bottling from one of our favorite producers of great value Port. Ports of this age (from quality producers) have spent the duration of their aging period in wood, so once opened they continue to develop over time. The bottle comes with a reusable cork so you can keep sipping for up to 2 months before the wine begins to degrade. Only a few bottles available!
NV Quinta do Noval 40 Year Old Tawny Port (limited!)
On Sale $149.99
The NV 40 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a bar-top cork and 169 grams per liter of residual sugar. The back label talks of “freshness,” which seems odd for a 40 Year Old, but Noval delivers all that and more here. The concentrated flavor burst on the lively finish shows touches of molasses and this is far more intense than the other Noval tawnies this issue on all fronts. However, its calling card is not intensity, but its amazingly youthful and fresh demeanor. The lift to the fruit gives this an irresistibly juicy finish, letting all those flavors linger beautifully. It is smooth, sensual and impeccably balanced, never obvious. This is quite fine.
