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 Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
