94 points John Gilman - " While the legendary ’63 Nacional is rightfully the first wine Port lovers think of when this vintage is mentioned at Quinta do Noval, one should not forget that in this great year the lodge produced two profound wines, not only one! The ’63 Quinta do Noval is a stunning bottle of Port that is at its absolute apogee of peak maturity, but still has decades and decades of life ahead of it. The gorgeous nose wafts from the glass in a blend of black cherries, fresh-culled mint, lovely soil tones, a touch of nuttiness and a gentle topnote of meatiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and gloriously complex, with a great core of fruit, a very powerful personality for mature Quinta do Noval, moderate tannins and stunning length and grip on the beautifully focused and quite tangy finish. This is a great drink already, but it may yet improve with further bottle age. It is one of the great, unsung ’63 Ports. (Drink between 2012-2075) 94+ (9/2012)."
