Quinta do Noval

The Silval Vintage combines power, complexity and concentration with a forward, fruity style making it approachable when quite young.

Wine Spectator

Superdark and powerful. Shows raisin, spice, coffee and violet aromas. Full-bodied, very chewy, with lots of grip and loads of fruit. Very long in the mouth. Outstanding young Port. Supervalue here. Best after 2012. 2,000 cases made.

Score: 94. —James Suckling, May 15, 2003.

Wine Enthusiast

A reasonably good buy in vintage Port, Silval is something of a second label for Quinta do Noval. It's less concentrated and suppler in the mouth than its sister wine, but still boasts compelling floral aromas allied to prune, berry and chocolate flavors. Worth trying a bottle before 2010.

Score: 90. —Joe Czerwinski, November 15, 2003.
