Quinta do Noval Nacional 2003 (92+JG) (750ML)
95-100 WS
"Very grapey on the nose, with blackberry and licorice undertones that follow to the palate. Massive on the palate. Medium sweet. It is supertannic, yet silky and caressing. Another super Nacional...95-100." WS 5/05 "The 2003 Nacional is a decided step up from the regular bottling of Noval in this vintage, as it does not show any hints of overripe tones to come on the finish and has plenty of that sappy black cherry fruit in evidence that is the Nacional calling card. The deep and very sappy nose jumps from the glass in a mix of plums, black cherries, tar, woodsmoke, lovely spice tones, soil, a hint of cedar and a nice topnote redolent of lavender. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and very powerful, with a rock solid core of fruit, ripe, firm tannins, quite good acidity for this torrid vintage and outstanding length and grip on the impressively fresh finish. I do not think this will ever eventually escape completely from the style of the vintage and is probably not destined to be a legendary example of Nacional, but it really is a pretty stunning 2003...92+" JG 10/12
