Product Description

True to its long history of continuous innovation, Noval has also been among the first to experiment with Rhône varieties in the Douro. In the end it was only Syrah that proved worthy, offering a flesh, vibrancy and silky charm to the Cedro bottling. Here, the Syrah component accounts for 30% of the blend. The balance is 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 10% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo). Matured in high quality French oak this is only the fourth release of Cedro do Noval. It is all class with a beautifully polished texture and deep, fresh red fruit notes. The tannins are ultra fine and the mineral, iodine like finish hinting at the slate soils in which it was grown. This will make a great, rewarding winter drop for those nights when a 'fancier' bottle may seem a little like overkill. Great value.

"Very pure tasting, with elegant red cherry, plum and smoked meat flavors. Raspberry, olive and savory herb notes fill the chiseled finish. Shows real pedigree with fine tannins and plenty of power."

"The 2007 "CEDRO DO NOVAL," Noval's second wine, is 30% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinto Cao, and 35% Syrah (hence, the use of the Duriense rather than Douro appellation). This has resolved well since my last look at it, the Syrah becoming much more fragrant (and a little funky) and the fruit opening. It now has a bright, succulent and juicy finish. It is beautifully structured, too, and built to hold well in the cellar. It is worth extending its drinking window a bit. Note that while it is approachable, it is not yet at peak. If you like its somewhat funky style, it is bargain priced. If you are looking for fruity, soft and sweet, this is not for you. Drink now-2018."
