1977 Croft

Post by nac » 11:10 Fri 07 Feb 2020

My contribution to "Bring a bottle to share" on Weds 5th Feb 2020.

One of six purchased 10ish years ago from Laithwaites. Suggested on the night that this is a late release hence unusual and pristine label.

Double decanted 24 hours prior to tasting.

Pale, wide watery rim. Initially something a bit off on the nose, but this cleared over the course of the evening. Quite reserved with not much happening. Much better in the mouth, good balance and development. Overall enjoyed.

The theme was bring some port to share, from the '70s or '80s, blind.
