2000 Offley Boa Vista vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:56 Tue 17 Jul 2012

Rich red colour, starting to soften. Attractive blackcurrant nose, sharp and hard. Restrained fruit on th palate, dominating over the firm tannins. This rewards patience, holding the port on the tongue allows good development of fruit. Big tannic aftertaste and a delightful long finish. Delicious - young but very drinkable. 88/100. 10-Jun-12. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
