96 points ""Very exciting firm, structured nose with a savoury, spicy density and bright, vivid fruit. The palate is super-concentrated with lovely forward fruit coupled with tight tannic spicy structure. Quite sweet. Bold and intense. Excellent 96/100" wine anorak"

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

94 points ""94 out of 100...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+." - WA " Best 2020-2045
