2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 21:34 Sun 06 Mar 2011

Another half bottle from the Tesco bonanza.

Deep red, still opaque. Blueberry on the nose, fruity but not big. Sweet blackcurrant fruit and surprising tannins. Very pleasant flavours. Good aftertaste with long finish. 86/100. Drunk 4 March 2011.

These half bottles are softening and are drinking nicely now - but I think will drink better in 2-5 years time.
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
