Mark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"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."

Wine Spectator:

"Intensely fruity, delivering vibrant orange zest, dried mango, apricot compote and baked apple flavors that are plush, well-structured and long. Notes of sage and honey mark the mineral-infused finish. Drink now. 25 cases imported."
