1966 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:31 Fri 22 Mar 2013

Cr66: dark dark red. Heat dominating the palate. Sweek dark plum fruit. JDAW, January 2013

Deep red, paling rim; 95% opaque. Dusty cherries on the nose, well developed, slightly sour. Rich fruity entry, lots of dark cherry Genoa cake. Big on the palate, really mouthfilling. Lovely acidity but a slight thinness or harshness to the palate. Tingling aftertaste, leaving hot cheeks and a cough mix finish. Enjoyable, but with some harsh elements. 89/100. 10 hour decant.
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
