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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
