1963 Offley Boa Vista

Post by Chris Doty » 11:35 Mon 15 Mar 2010

"The Sampler" on Upper Street has this in their little machine. 4 quid or so gets you a mini glass, and while small, it gives a decent enough impression of the wine.

This effort, which was likely never anything to write home about, appears to be drying out and on its last legs. Light, almost rust in color. Pretty flat on the nose, with a bit of cheap strawberry syrup, cough medicine, and burnt wood (the nicest part of the nose). Pretty thin and tired on the palate, with decent grip by virtually no fruit. Not 'bad,' and a worthwhile experience, but not something to seek out, and certainly not worth the 96 quid price tag.

82.

Chris

To help the process which sorts out the tasting notes into the indices, could you edit the title of this TN to read "1963 Offley" please.

Thanks,

Alex
