2000 Offley Boa Vista

Post by AHB » 22:33 Sun 05 Nov 2017

By the glass from the Boot & Flogger. Deep red, quite youthful with an opaque centre. Slight stink on the nose with quite a lot of alcohol showing. On the palate the stink shows through as a dirty tone to the fruit. Very hot and peppery on the palate with modest tannins providing some dry grip. Bitter cherry and juniper dominate the palate, taking a long time to settle down to a bitter licorice. Bitter aftertaste, like biting into an unpeeled grapefruit, and a very very long finish. Still not attractive and in need of much more time to settle down. 84/100. 21-Sep-17.
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
