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 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
