2000 Croft

More evolved and with more bricking that the Taylor 2000 shown alongside. Sharp cherries and brown sugar on the nose. Balanced entry, showing attractive fruit and decent tannins with nice acidity. Good palate presence; lovely lifted fruit. Soft, gentle aftertaste and a fruit driven finish. Open and drinking well today. 90/100. Drunk 14-May-14.
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
