2003 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:59 Sun 06 Jul 2008

Massively extracted colour, still opaque and purple. Typical blackcurrant nose of a young port, jumping out of the glass. Entry is sweet and smooth, caressing the tongue with soft fruits. Then the fruit lozenge explodes and the tannins gently grab your teeth while the fruit just builds up to amazing levels and forces you to swallow. Length is good. 96/100. Tasted 5 October 2006.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
