2010 Offley Forrester LBV

Post by AHB » 21:25 Sun 29 May 2016

Bottled 2014. Deep red, youthful and opaque. Blackcurrants and esteva on the nose. At first this is reluctant to show anything on the palate but some patience allows the wine to show that it is full of tannin and power wrapped around with generous amounts of fruit. An astonishing quality of wine from an "off vintage". 90/100. 22-Apr-16.
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
