2008 Offley Forrester LBV

Post by AHB » 22:42 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Gently perfumed nose; subdued sour cherries. Gentle entry, balanced with plenty of fruit but punishing tannins. Despite the tannins this is surprisingly light-bodied in style. The perfumed fruit comes late on the palate. Dry gripping tannins dominate the aftertaste. Modest in style but will cellar happily. 85/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
