Antonio Taveira’s family breathes new life into the illustrious Noble & Murat brand whose tradition as a port house started over a century and half ago in 1831. The family has a long history of precision hand-harvesting, distinguished sourcing, and methodical vinification. For decades they have provided grapes for Taylor’s, Croft, and Sandeman among others, but now they have decided to keep the best grapes for their own wines.

    The 2012 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend coming in at 94 grams per liter of residual sugar. Two-thirds aged in stainless steel, with the rest in Chestnut casks, this was bottled unfiltered and with a real cork in April 2017. This traditional LBV is lovely. It is respectably concentrated for this elegant vintage and well on the fresher side, consistent with the vintage and the stainless steel. It has beautiful fresh fruit, purity and focus. The fruit is expressive and capable of developing more complexity in time. The lingering finish is laced with chocolate and blueberries, but it dries quickly, showing off good structure too. This is very well done.

    Juicy and engaging, with an ebullient mix of blueberry, plum and raspberry pâte de fruit notes bouncing through, laced liberally with anise and ganache details. A light briar hint gives the finish some grip and contrast. Best from 2030 through 2045. 500 cases made, 60 cases imported.
