2007 Croft

Post by AHB » 22:01 Wed 21 May 2014

Fruity, slightly aggressive and a touch tanky on the nose. Hollow entry, mineral dominated showing little of Croft's typical luscious fruit at first. Dry tannins support the mid-palate fruit bit the balance is missing. Delicious chewy fruit-salad sweet finish and a great length. Perhaps this is just starting to close down. 92/100. 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
