1927 Croft

Post by AHB » 09:02 Mon 02 Jan 2017

A bottle which was obviously compromised. Dark toffee colour and full of fine particulate, opaque. Oxidised nose with lots of rosemary oil and antiseptic. On the palate this is soft and sweet and first with gentle brown sugar tones. These are slowly replaced by a modest layer of acidity before the rosemary and antiseptic come to the fore. The finish is long and full of rosemary oil. Sadly this was a spoiled bottle, but not to the extent of being undrinkable. 95/100. Drunk 25-Sep-16. Decanted ½ hour.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
