"Christian Seely recently introduced this wine in New York as a rethinking of the super-premium, multivintage Porto style. Black replaces LB, Noval's former entry in this range, and uses top-quality fruit to create a soft, accommodating texture. The aromas are purple-black while the flavors are pure black cherry. Acidity spices it up and adds to the juiciness of the finish. It's plump in the middle and supple all the way through, ending on fruit-skin tannin and a touch of chocolate from oak. At the level of many of the region's best LBVs, this wine may become a staple for a new generation of Port drinkers."
"After 15 tireless years of work replanting the vineyards at Quinta do Noval, the estate has been seeing results in the past few years of superb fruit to choose from each harvest. The exceptional quality across the estate is the foundation for Noval’s great vintage ports, but it has also enabled the development of Noval BLACK, a new port that showcases the distinctive Noval terroir. Noval BLACK is made in a fresh, pure fruit style accessible on release and unlike anything else being made today in the Douro Valley." -Importer
