1963 Offley Vintage Port

Post by Simon Lisle » 12:45 Mon 26 Nov 2007

I confess to having a soft spot for Offley ports.This was lovely after two hours decanting quite a deep ruby colour for it's age big fat and sweet blackberry with a hint of tobacco spoilt a bit by a short finish.No better after eight hours this port is still on it's plateau a bit one dimensional is my only gripe very very enjoyable Toms scale 7-7 .A good buy at £30 a bottle six months ago.
