2004 Croft LBV

Post by AHB » 22:53 Tue 05 Nov 2013

Half bottle; bottled in 2009. Deep red, opaque. Sour cherries on the nose, inviting and making the mouth water. Modest bodied impact; initially a touch sour but sweetness and black chocolate tannins develop on the mid-palate. Rich and mouthfilling flavours, full of black cherry. A big burst of acidity on the aftertaste before a long, black chocolate finish. Jolly good port. 88/100. Drunk 02-Nov-13. Decanted 1½ hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
