Offley 2016 – Vintage Porto

Offley 2016 – Vintage Porto

The nose is fruity, mineral and offers a slight power (in the background). It reveals notes of ripe cassis, blackberry and small notes of red berry associated with a touch of plum as well as hints of cornflowers, Cuben pepper, Zan, sweet spices, liquorice stick and coffee. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a slight straightness, precision as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, fleshy cassis and small notes of plum associated with small touches of fleshy raspberry / cherry, graphite, chocolate, spices, liquorice as well as a very discreet hint of eucalyptus and pepper (in the background). Tannins are well-built. There is a very discreet hint of dried almond on the finish.
