2000 Offley / Boa Vista Vintage
|Review:||Firm tannin and an astringent finish kept this 2000 from meriting an outstanding score, and|
from qualifying as a sleeper of the vintage. The color is a deep opaque ruby/purple. The wine
offers attractive sweet floral and licorice-infused blackberry fruit, medium to full body, outstanding purity as well as mid-palate, but a tough-textured finish with alcohol poking
through. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2019.

|Review:||Wonderful aromas of plums, chocolate and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate with chewy tannins and a long, rich finish. Punchy red. This is the best modern Vintage Port of Offley I have ever tasted. Best after 2010. 2,700 cases made. (JS)|
