1980 Croft Quinta da Roeda vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:11 Tue 02 Feb 2010

Slightly cloudy appearance, pale in colour. Showing little on the nose and with a hollow impact followed with lots of heat in the palate and very little fruit. Patience with the wine in the mouth allows some candied fruit to come through. The aftertaste is hollow but eventually some bitter orange peel shows through on the finish. 80/100. Drunk 1 Feb 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Red-brown, slightly tawny. Nosing of raisins. To taste: burnt? Coffee? Heat heat. Lovely soft raisins.

Some maple syrup component which is rather interesting, if a bit feint. Very smooth in the mouth. Not a tremendous amount of flavor, but it is quite silky. More weight than the 75s, which stood out at first blush, but over time, the lack of flavor/complexity became increasingly clear. 82
