1970 Croft

Post by AHB » 19:29 Sun 29 Oct 2017

Dark and mature colour, well pigmented but browning slightly; under candlelight, this was opaque. Delicious nose of Christmas fuit cake. Sweet on the entry with very good balance; not as intense as the Graham 1972 colheita but sweeter and more elegant with a lovely sweet figgy aftertaste. This was a thoroughly delicious port. 92/100. 19-Jun-17. Drunk 12 hours.
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
