1995 Croft Quinta do Roeda vintage port

Post by AHB » 20:14 Sun 19 Sep 2010

Decanted off a large amount of fine sediment sludge. Wonderful smell of blackcurrants during decanting.

Deep red colour, opaque. Nosing beautifully of dry blackcurrants. Mouthfilling impact, huge waves of blackcurrants and blueberries; massive acidic structure, supporting the spicy tannins. Big aftertaste of hot blackcurrant, followed by a long finish of dark chocolate and bitter blackcurrant. Simply delicious port, and with lots more potential yet. 90/100. Drunk 19 September 2010 after 48 hours of decanting.
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

CR95: at D+5d, 70% opaque, dark red, pink at edge. Very jammy and cloying. Slight acidity, and heat. Very pleasant port to drink on a tram ‟tram port”.
