Offley Port Rosé has a light pink color and a tropical aroma. Balanced and fresh has also tropical flavor giving it too much sweetness my taste.

Offley Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008 has an intense ruby color and an aroma where we can find lots of ripe fruit, wood and spices. Well structured and lots of fruit in the mouth. Nice persistence.

Quinta do Vale Meão Vintage 2008

Setembro 2012 - Douro 075Concerning the winery already wrote about it recently although this Vintgae is from 2008 and also from Douro Superior. A hot region based in the North of Portugal, right in Pocinho. With a dark purple color and fruit aroma full of blackberries, strawberries, raspeberries and spices this wine has firm tannins, fruity flavour and nice persistence. Would like to taste in some years.
