2000 Croft

Post by DRT » 22:29 Sat 13 Mar 2010

Served blind at this off-line at the Crusting Pipe, London, on 9th March 2010.

The ports: Wines marked "*" were purchase on the night at TCP due to a world record consumption of 1 bottle each in less than 2 hours, which included dinner :roll:

Likewise. Left all my notes on the table, and can't remember this one!

This bottle was quite tricky for me to score. Obviously very young and quite closed, it showed decent structure, but it was hard to get a look at the fruit though the acid and tannin. I have really enjoyed Croft VP lately, so I may pick one up as a flyer. 84? (with 89-91 potential?)

The only bit I remeber that it had a very dark red to black colour and was fairly closed. Also had some chocolate flavours and a longe finish noted. All the ingredients are there. In ~20 years this should develop into a very good Port indeed.
