2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 21:42 Mon 02 Apr 2012

Half bottle; bottled in 2009. Dark red, opaque. Violets and balckcurrants show on the gentle nose. Soft palate, gentle spice, vibrant acidity and dusty tannins - but overall dominated by the fruit. Long, sweet bramble finish. Improving with the extra time in the bottle - and a step up from the ruby reserves we were tasting recently. 87/100. Drunk 2 Apr 2012 after 2 hour decant.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
