1997 Croft Quinta da Roeda single quinta vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:15 Sun 30 Nov 2008

Deep red, strongly extracted. Strong scent of blackcurrants and blackberries. Empty entry but flavours develop in the midpalate. Very acidic but complexity of red fruits and citrus flavours is enjoyable. Tannins dominate the initial aftertaste decay into a long and chocolately aftertaste. 85/100. Drunk 30/11/06 after 1 hour in the decanter.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
