1977 Croft

Post by g-man » 18:39 Fri 28 Jun 2013

Decanted for 2 hours in open air.

Bit hot coming out at the cork popping mark so I decided to let it sit in the decanter.

Color of light reddish brown.

A fully mature port to be drunk now, this had a nose of orange peels and various bark spices like cinnamon blended with nutmeg/mace.
the body followed through with orange marmalade, a delightfully smooth and balanced body finishing with a sweet ginger finish.

93.
