The 2009 year was characterised by a low grape production, much in part due to the very dry summer that was felt in that year. The harvest at Quinta de Vargellas began on September 12th and it was verified that the amount of fruit was greatly reduced, leading to a production of concentrated wines, with high sugar levels. Taylor's Vargellas Vinha Velha Vintage 2009 is a deep black purple colour Port wine with sublime aromas of ripe fruit like plums, black cherries, cassis and slight notes of rosewood and clove.
Offley Boa Vista Vintage 2011 has a deep dark red color, almost opaque. Its aroma is complex and sophisticated, with special highlight to fruity notes of black fruits, mainly plum, balsamic notes of resin and cedar, some floral notes, as well as spicy ones like cloves and nutmeg.
It is a wine with a balanced acidity, firm and well integrated tannins. On the palate it is possible to experience the presence of ripe black fruits, such as plum and cherry, providing a persistent and sublime finish.
