See here for a new article on 2015v Port by Jancis Robinson MW. To summarize her comments:

“most of the important port shippers launched some baby 2015s on to the
market, and extremely good most of those we have tasted are too”

Below is her review specifically of Quinta do Noval:

“Quinta do Noval 2015 Port
Very deep purplish crimson. Almost impenetrable. Very serious stuff. So dense and concentrated that the nose has to be encouraged. This is classic young vintage port! Massive young treacle notes with a top layer of dried herbs and clean, zesty, ripe, complex fruit on the mid palate. Not the sweetest 2015 vintage port but thoroughly convincing and glamorous – if very youthful. I wonder what quantity was made?”
