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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
