1945 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:27 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deep colour, crystal clear and glowing in its magnificence. Quite hot on the nose (the room was warmer than would have been ideal) with a touch of Croft orange or tangerine. Lovely thick texture, big bodied and full of massive fruit flavours. A lovely aftertaste; not big but lingering and full of marmalade. Just wonderful port. 99/100. Drunk 29 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
