Read all about Offley at: Visiting Offley in Porto

I bought this vintage port in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark, it was on offer at 30 Euro. 750ml bottle at 20,5%.

It is only 13 – 14 years old and is properly still too young.

The colour is dark red almost bordeaux.

Taste notes 1 hour after decanting.

Weak fruit to the aroma that is dominated by the alcohol.

Tasting is dry, warm, tannin and some unbalanced notes that almost made me think it was a little corked.

Taste notes 24 hours after decanting.

The dried fruit shines more through in the aroma and alcohol is less dominant.

The taste still have a dry heavy start from the tannin and a great warmth. The unbalanced mentioned earlier is gone and a good after taste finishes it.


It should properly get some more years in the cellar, it lacks the complexity in the taste and a balance in aroma and taste.

Overall rating 87 / 100
