1966 Croft

Post by jdaw1 » 22:22 Wed 09 Nov 2011

On Tuesday 8th November 2011, in The Steak Exchange EC2A 2EH, friends gathered to note the return to London of jdaw1, and the recent birth of his second daughter. The theme was ‟Port With Star Quality”, with appropriately themed placemats.

Cr66, from DRT: dark, 60% oapque. Light weight port, sweet, with lots of heat on the tip of the tongue. Maybe mid-weight, with good length. Fine port.

Modest colour, 50% opaque. Spicy juniper and blackthorn on the nose, slightly subdued. Silky entry, mouth filling and very tasty. Full of fruit with a great palate presence. Rich flavours, still youthful. Big aftertaste and a tremendous finish. A very impressive port, really delicious. 93/100.
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
