Sokolin 1970 Quinta Do Noval Vintage Port Tasting Notes:

As youthful and effortlessly charming as a first love, and as intricate and developed as a wine of its age, The 1970 Quinta Do Noval is a Port to remember forever. It's intense and seductive, while never going too far or becoming overbearing. On the nose, you're looking at a bombastic showing of black cherry, cassis, licorice and a hint of earthy minerals. This is followed up perfectly on the palate, where the elegance and refinement of the wine truly come into focus. The fruit is incredibly pure, almost pristine, and the depth of flavor puts canyon chasms to shame.

The wine is currently at the peak of its maturity, so it's a great option if you're looking to drink something right now. It can still go for a decade or so if necessary, however, although you may not be able to resist its siren call for that long. What a bottle of wine to get immersed in!

Region Port: Oporto is the home to the most exceptional Portuguese wines out there. Located on the Atlantic coast, one of the largest cities of Portugal is also one of the most well-regarded wine regions in this European country. At its beginnings, Port wine was more acidic and dry than today. That was due to brandy, which winemakers added to wine to keep it stable before they shipped it to the UK. Later on, brandy was used to capture the sweet ripe grape flavors, which contributed to the maturing potential of Port wines. Vinho do Porto is one of the favorite dessert wines for many, given it's usually irresistibly sweet. However, other varieties are also known to win the hearts of wine enthusiasts all over the world with beautiful whites, and delicious semi-dry reds, whether they're aged in bottles or in barrels. There are more than a hundred different grape varieties in Port, but only five have made it to the top. Tinta Barroca, typical for the Douro region, and Tempranillo, known for its early ripening, are some of the most commonly blended ones. Tempranillo is also famous for its remarkable strawberry and plum hints on the palate. To get to know Port wines, one must not miss out on Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port, or Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port.
Type of Wine Port: Port wines have always been different than other European wines due to their history with brandy, and today they're highly appreciated by wine enthusiasts on all the continents. Red Port wines are typically made of Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, and Touriga Nacional grape varietals. As for whites, most of them are based on Gouveio, Moscatel Galego, and Malvasia Fina varieties.
