This said, however, older vintages are worth every penny. Nacionals such as the 1970, 1967 and 1966 are wonderfully concentrated and show a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors. They will continue to improve with cellaring for decades to come. The 1963 is a benchmark for vintage Port and still tastes like a five- or six-year-old Port today. It's a perfect wine.
At a recent tasting of Nacional vintage Ports in London, Christian Seely, the managing director of Noval, sat speechless minutes after tasting the '63. "It's still hard to believe that this wine is over 30 years old," he said. "It is an amazing wine." He also said that the company may begin releasing a few vintages of Nacional in the market, mostly through wine auctions in London. More people may soon have the opportunity to experience the pleasures of this fine vintage Port.
