Winemaker Notes

The 2003 Vintage Port is a wine in this great tradition. After an extremely hot month of August, a short period of rain at the end of the month, followed several weeks of ideal conditions enabled the grapes to reach full maturity by the time we picked in October. Quinta do Noval Vintage 2003 is full bodied with intense color and a complex bouquet showing wild flowers and ripe red fruits. The wine shows great... View More

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

What a nose. Ripe fruit, with chocolate, blackberries and raisins. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with velvety tannins. Finish goes on and on. Layered and wonderful. Best after 2014.

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

Saturated deep ruby. Sweet aromas of black cherry, cassis, licorice, molasses, minerals, toffee and violet. Dense, sweet and pliant, with outstanding precision and depth of flavor. Like the Silval, this boasts a seductively creamy texture. The explosive, mounting finish offers a fine dusting of ripe, suave tannins and great breadth. Deceptively easy to taste today owing to its finesse, but it's hard to believe that it won't shut down in bottle in the near future. This wine features a particularly high percentage of touriga nacional.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The inky, purple-colored, opaque 2003 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port soars from the glass, revealing dates, black cherries, copious flowers, and plums. Full-bodied, broad, and lush, this top-flight wine is harmonious and exhibits stupendous purity of fruit. Blueberries, cherries, and candied strawberries can be found in its nuanced, lengthy, plum-laced core as well as in its immensely long, dried berry-tinged finish. Drink this beauty between 2020 and 2045+.

Quinta do Noval
Although the property of Quinta do Noval first appeared in land registries in 1715, its history as a premium Port producer truly began when it was bought and renovated by the distinguished Port shipper, António José da Silva.
