2007 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:33 Tue 12 May 2009

A single tasting opportunity at the London presentation of 2007 vintage ports presented by the Symingtons, Taylor Fladgate and Noval.

Quite light in colour and with a violet rim. Nose is dominated by herbaceousness and blackcurrants. Restrained but fruity entry with soft tannins and a slightly awkward balance. Good, big aftertaste. Not as good as 2003 but still very pleasant. 87-89. Tasted 6/5/09.
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
