2011 Offley Boa Vista

Post by AHB » 22:40 Sun 25 May 2014

Deep red/purple, 95% opaque. Gentle nose full of soft, ripe fruit but not showing strongly. Delicious texture, lots of floral fruit before firm tannins show up and dominate the mid-palate. Powerful ripe acidity comes late in the flavour profile, and is always full of fruit. Sparkling peppery but fruity finish. Very fine port. 93+. 93-95/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
