Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 97 Points
Wine Spectator 98 Points. This has terrific energy from the start, with a bramble note inlaid in the core of cherry and plum paste flavors. Sappy, sweet and fresh, with a plum cake—infused finish. Gains focus and polish as it stretches out in the glass.
James Suckling 98 Points. This is a superb baby Noval that reminds me of the 1966. Chewy yet so polished. The light sweetness suggests an overall dialing back of the sugar content. Stemmy and lightly green. A truly classic Noval. Almost all from Pinhao. Buy.
