1963 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 10:55 Thu 12 Jul 2012

Rich red colour, palaing slightly on the rim. Spicy nose, lovely cinammon and nicotania nose over the top of super fruit. Sweet and wonderful balance on the palate. Gently spicy, nutmeg and mace over sweet rhubarb and cherry. Lovely texture. Long and lingering finish of milky coffee. 90/100. 10-Jun-12. 8½ hours decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994

Cr63 brick red, 50% opaque. Nosing of cherries. Taste of Tizer! Heat and cherry, but so reminiscent of childhood consumption of Tizer. JDAW.
