1997 Croft Quinta da Roeda single quinta vintage port

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 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
