2008 Croft's Quinta da Roeda

Post by AHB » 22:04 Mon 05 Jul 2010

A nose dominated by redcurrants and Blood Oranges! Light-bodied, with good levels of fruit on the palate and some pronounced tannins which dominate the fruit for a while. The aftertaste is big and peppery and followed by a long finish of dry blackcurrant skins. 87-89. Very good port with lots of potential. 5 July 2010.
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
