2008 Croft Quinta da Roeda

Post by DRT » 08:52 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

A big blackcurrant nose with some spice. Medium weight with dark cherry and lots of acidity. The finish is initially dry, with some heat, but then develops into a mouth-watering sweetness. Good solid port. 89 points.
