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 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
