2003 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 08:35 Tue 10 May 2011

Opaque; modest on the nose with attractive fruit but not a smell that leaps from the glass. Slightly lighter bodied entry than the Skeffington 2003 or the Vargellas Vinha Velha 2004 shown alongside with firm tannins and sweet fruit - but ouch! Those acidity levels hurt! Great fruit on the palate, which leads to an intense fruit driven aftertaste and huge length. Very, very good port. 92/100
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
