No sediment at all, neither on muslin nor in bottle.

1997 Offley Boa Vista: Very clear black red. Nose says that it’s way too young, but plums plums plums. Later the plum nose would overwhelm the cheeses. To taste plums (again), and blackberries, with a strong tannic astringency and medium acid. Needs another ten years in the cellar, or another day in the decanter.
