1960 Croft

Post by AHB » 22:40 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Casa Ribeira Restaurante (where they do an excellent suckling pig).

Oporto bottled. Gentle spiced raisins and citrus zest on the nose. Gentle orange and candied cherry on the palate, sweet and highlighting the ground peppercorn liveliness to the wine. Sweet and gentle chocolate on the palate, creamy and a little spicy but with a nice thick texture. Hot on the aftertaste with a milk chocolate and and orange finish with heat all the way through. Showing lots of orange and lots of milk chocolate. 88/100. 22-Jun-17. Decanted 5 hours.
