2006 Offley LBV

Post by jdaw1 » 00:28 Sat 09 Apr 2011

Tasted at The Big Fortified Tasting, a trade fair in London at Glaziers Hall on Wed 06 April 2011 (Review thread, containing links to other tasting notes). This being a large trade-fair event, tasting notes generally brief.

2006 Offley LBV. Much more cloying and less drinkable than the 2005 Offley LBV.

Offley 2006 LBV
Very similar to the 2005 but much more tannic in the mouth. Felt rather closed; it may open to something very nice in a few years.

Quite closed on the nose. Soft and gentle entry, light bodied with reserved fruit and dominating tannins. Big finish of big length, but too tannic for my taste. 87/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
