1970 Offley Boa Vista

Post by winesecretary »

24 hour decant. A fine deep ruby.

Nose of crushed herbs, star anise, cherries in kirsch.

Lovely smooth mouthfeel, blood orange, red cherry, cinnamon and star anise again.

The very faintest warmth, late, with a hint of allspice.

Delicious port, perfectly ready. From same case as previous bottle reported on this forum. Absolutely cracking and an advert for high quality provenance.

Just to note - fading after 48 hours. Still good port but not splendid.
