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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
