2011 Croft

Post by AHB » 08:32 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Pronounced fragrant fruity nose which developed more complexity over a few days. Plenty of fruit on the palate, backed up by firm tannins and a lovely structure. Develops a big palate presence with more air, with lots of floral nuances. Big, grippy aftertaste and a long finish. This is great port. 95-97. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
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
