2011 Offley Boa Vista

Post by AHB » 18:04 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Nose slightly odd - at first full of applemint and freesias but this deteriorates over the course of 3-4 days to become resinous and unattractive. At first big and balanced on the palate but with more time the tannins become very dry and dominating, promising a long life ahead. Most certainly not intended to be an early drinker this port is one of the most tanninc of the 2011 vintage and packs a real punch. 93-95. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
