James Suckling’s web site features a post on Quinta do Noval’s 2013 Vintage Port declaration. An excerpt is below. Click here for the link and article

“Quinta do Noval, a famed Port producer from Portugal’s Douro Valley, in a rare move has declared the year 2013 a vintage despite small quantities and a wet harvesting season.

In general, there’s no law regulating declaration of Port vintage, but it is declared from time to time mostly when all the other Port houses decide to do so, usually three to four vintages in a decade. The last three fully declared vintages are 2011, 2007 and 2003.”
