2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 00:26 Wed 28 Dec 2011

Another of the half bottles from Tesco.

Cherry dominated nose; cherry dominated fruit driven palate. On the light side of medium bodied but with a really nice balance with ripe acidity and soft, chalky tannins. The aftertaste is of good length and dominated by ripe, red cherries. Very tasty and in a lovely drinking window. 88/100. Drunk 27 December 2011 after 3 hours 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
