1977 Croft: Brick red. Very soft, a little heat, extremely long. Later I though nosing of meat beef. ‟Tastes of port”, I wrote. Utterly lovely.

I absolutely LOVE this port ... I think this is one of the best 77s for drinking now.

Not one of Croft's best vintages, but is drinking now for sure.

There seems to be some bottle variation too amongst our fellow posters.

Good to read these notes. I have not had a bad bottle of this wine. Invariably seductive, deep, and charming.
It may be drivel, but it's not meaningless.
