2012 Croft Roeda

Post by AHB » 15:54 Sun 08 Jun 2014

Lovely colour with a purple rim. Stunning nose, full of opulent blackcurrant and pineapple. Soft in texture with lush fruit and then very firm tannins. A great palate presence with such rich fruit but a great balance. The aftertaste is slow to develop but is long and has multiple layers. Delicious port. 91-93. Drunk 03-Jun-14.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
