1987 Offley Boa Vista

Post by AHB » 22:23 Sun 27 Dec 2015

Bottled 1990. Deep red, no bricking but no purple; opaque. Baked fruit on the nose, gentle and subdued. Baked fruit dominated the palate; gentle tannins still show through the baked fruit. The aftertaste emphasises the baked nature of the fruit. Drinkable port, but not an experience I would choose to repeat - there's just too much other good port. 82/100. Drunk 22-Nov-15. Decant time N/K.
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
